Welcome to the Warbleton Brass Band Home Page
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 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.
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.
Listen to the band while you shop.
On 18 Aug, 10:00 – 12:00
For all those that have asked when we will be playing at the Heathfield Farmers Market again, we can confirm we will be there on the 18th August from 10am. The last time we played we were fighting against the beast from the east and the heavy snow it brought with it. Despite the cold and snow we thoroughly enjoyed the friendly interaction with the stallholders and the public. We are looking forward to a fun morning entertaining everyone but this time with more sunshine and less snow.
Sunday 26th and 27th August
We all look forward to the August bank holiday week end. For the band its a busy weekend.
On Sunday 26th August we will be playing on the Eastbourne bandstand at 3pm and Monday 27th we will be performing at Le Marche, Heathfield's French street market at 9.30.
Celebrate the end of world war 1 at Batemans, the home of Rudyard Kipling in Burwash .
2018, Its 100 years since the end of world war 1. We joined many re-enactment groups to celebrate the war's end at Batemans, the Sussex home of Rudyard Kipling.
We played a variety of music from the many decades since the end of the Great War. Of course we played all the favourites from that time but we also played many upbeat popular tunes to reflect the vibrant free society we are all fortunate to live in thanks to all those that fought and died during the great war. Our final piece was Slaidburn to accompany the assembled troop march past. We would like to thank everyone for all the positive feedback we received and to the organisers for inviting us to play at this prestige's event.
Proms on the Green 2018
It was that time of the year when Rushlake Green echoes to the sounds of the Proms. Unfortunately despite months of hot dry weather it changed a day too early for our proms concert. We are lucky we have use of the flower show marquee and therefore were able to put on a great performance albeit indoors. We have to thank all those that braved to horrendous weather to support this annual event and hope everyone enjoyed the varied program of music. We were joined by Sidonie Winter who sang a lovely rendition of Misty along with all the proms favourites. We are sure next year will be a lovely warm summers evening, so everyone put it in your diaries now. It will be the last Sunday in July 2019.
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? 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? 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?
Most summer engagements allow for the band to relax and enjoy what the venue has to offer. 2016 saw the resurgence of the men v women competition involving many of the traditional Fete games? We also enjoy other social events such as the band BBQ where everyone can enjoy the food, drink and the many games that are devised and refined as the evening progresses.
