Warbleton Brass Band has evolved into a modern forward thinking brass band, attracting members from all ages and abilities, but still ensuring they keep some of that wonderful traditional feel with smart uniform, regular events and of course supporting the local community. Even if you have little or no experience of playing a brass instrument, you are welcome to join our successful training band where instruments and tuition are provided for free. All we ask in return is a bit of home practice and the desire to eventually be part of the main band. We are always looking for new players to join us and become part of the Band’s bright future.‘
