Christmas

Concert

at the Dunn Village Hall Rushlake Green Sunday 1st December 2pm


Rushlake Green is home to the Warbleton Brass Band


Just a stone's throw from Heathfield in the heart of Warbleton Parish in East Sussex. The band perform a wide variety of music from the traditional through to present day favourites. Whether it be from a musical, film, classical and light popular, the band aim to entertain wherever they play. 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 eventuallybe part of the main band.  We are always looking for new players to join us and become part of the band's bright future. Meeting every Friday at 7.45pm in Dunn Village Hall, Rushlake Green,TN21 9QE.


Come along for a listen and see what you think or alternatively contact our Secretary for more details about this popular hardworking, but fun brass band.

Fantastic evening of fun. Over 20 pieces played all chosen by the audience. The list of music to choose from was long and varied in genres and speed. Unfortunately for the band the audience were in high spirits and upbeat. This resulted in upbeat (fast) music being chosen. When Sussex by the Sea was chosen Sian took the opportunity to hand over the stick to one of the youngest in the audience to conduct the band, and a brilliant job he did. Lots of money was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support and we all had cake!!! Thanks to all our supporters, friends and family who made it possible.

Massed band at Tonbridge Castle

Warbleton Brass Band were proud to have taken part in the massed band performance organised by the Cranbrook Town Band. The performance was in aid of McMillan Cancer Support. Warbleton were just one of many local bands invited to join Cranbrook at Tonbridge Castle on a lovely sunny afternoon to raise money for this very worthy charity. Other local brass bands invited to play included Wadhurst, LGB, Battle and Uckfield who all wore their own uniforms and dressed their stands with their own banners.

From the reaction of the crowds and the online responses, this year's Le Marche performance was the best yet. This year Sian allowed a brief moment between pieces to allow the audience to show their appreciation.

Eric Kemp who does such a great job organising the music for the event showed his great dexterity in finding the smallest of break in the free flowing music to announce to the ever growing crowds the extensive line up for the rest of the day. Eric has always insisted that music on the stage must be upbeat and popular, we hope our performance ticked all his boxes. Despite the high temperatures we managed 19 pieces in the allotted hour.

The Band made its annual trip to the seaside to play on the Eastbourne Bandstand. It's always a pleasure to play in these beautiful surroundings. The band gave and entertaining and well received performance to a very appreciative and large audience who were able to enjoy the lovely atmosphere as well as the music. As usual we played various styles of music from the traditional to the present day popular music, including favourites from stage and screen.

Every Friday is an open rehearsal when anyone is more than welcome to come along to listen or indeed think about joining.

Did you use to play many years ago? Always fancied having a go on a brass instrument? Want a hobby for your children,

or Just decided to take up a challenge?

Then why not join a friendly community band.


Want a hobby for your children? Just decided to take up a challenge?  We have instruments, tuition, uniforms and music, all you need is the enthusiasm to give it a go, what have you got to lose? It's all free of charge and our training band is taught by our MD who is a professional music teacher.  Come along at 7pm to chat with the MD or speak to a committee member, perhaps arrange to try an instrument. 7.15pm is the training band, come and listen to how we encourage players of all ages and standards to improve and play as an ensemble. The main band is at 7.45pm, we then let the training band members sit in for the first 15 minutes to get a feel for the big  band and to play alongside more experienced players.  8pm we knuckle down with some hard work, a few laughs, maybe even a few groans but most of all we have nearly two hours of music making with friends.  What could be better?
