    • Do you play a brass instrument?
    • Do you have time for a couple of hours every week on a Wednesday Evening?
    • Would you like to perform with a group of other musicians in various local venues throughout the year?
    • Do you live or could easily travel to Lancaster?

    if the answer to these questions is YES! we have some vacancies in our band that you might be interested in... 

    • Cornets - Positions negitiable
    • Bb Bass
    • Horn

    We're very fortunate to be almost at full strength, but with an expanding calendar of seated, standing and marching events it would be great to find additional players.

    It would be helpful if you're already at grade 5 standard, however we will support you to improve

    If you'd like to talk with the band leader about sitting in on a rehearsal or filling any of these opportunities, please call 01524 915115 or email on 

    We look forward to meeting you!


  • Garstang - Even better in the wet
  •  Date Posted: Tue, 7 Jun 2022
    There's something about the banging of the drum, the slipperyness of a wet road and the roar of a supportive crowd to encourage the start of 6000 step march around Garstang.   -- Always a favourite with the band, it was a pleasure to support this gala event.

  • It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas
  •  Date Posted: Mon, 6 Dec 2021

    The first full day of caroling has been completed.. Many thanks to those who came to play, and many thanks to Sue for collecting. 

    We raised a little over £300 which is a great start :)

    It was great to turn out a band of 16 players, and we certainly startled more than a few pigeons.. !

    There were some lovely moments when we managed to gather some families, who seemed to enjoy the tunes. 

    Special thanks to Nicola and Ashley who curated the order and counted in wonderfully.

    At this time of year the band spends many hours playing carols in shopping centres, and for festive events.

  • Remembrance Sunday
  •  Date Posted: Sun, 14 Nov 2021

    We appreciated the opportunity with our fellow citizens, to remember with thanks the members of various organisations and armed forces from Lancaster who served to gain freedoms that we all enjoy today.

    A special mention of thanks also to band members, Antonia, Debbie and Ashley who played the Last Post and Reville in the memorial gardens and at the Priory Church.


    if anyone took any pictures or video of the parade, or gardens, please feel free to share them with us
