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.

Eastbourne Bandstand 26th August 2018

Well what can we say about Sundays performance on the bandstand? I think it shows that it doesn't matter if we have a small audience in the pouring rain or a large audience in glorious sunshine we will always put on a top performance. Despite the terrible weather we were cheered by a small but enthusiastic audience that were able to find shelter from the driving rain. That said the site of people dancing in the rain was a fine example of when the music is so good even the weather can't dampen your spirits.

Le Marché 2018

This year's performance at Le Marché was a spectacular example of how the brass band has evolved. Le Marché is usually the end of the summer engagements and we saved the best until last. Heathfield is our local town, so it was a lovely end of season performance for all our members friends and family, and of course all the public who stopped shopping for 45 minutes to enjoy our musical treat. This year we were given the more prestigious midmorning slot and from the feedback we received it clearly hit the spot with the shoppers and stall holders alike.

Warbleton Brass Band Coffee evening was a great success with many new faces joining all those that regularly enjoy our events throughout the year. We must thank all those that donated to the Macmillan cancer trust for the privilege of choosing the music we play. For those that didn't get to choose their favourites we hope you still enjoyed a great evening with plenty of tea and cake while listening to a modern-day brass band doing what it does best. keep an eye on our engagements page for 2019 when we hope to do it all again.

 

We raised nearly £570 for Macmillan cancer trust

You listened to the band while you shopped.

The last time we played at the Farmers market we were fighting against the beast from the east and the heavy snow it brought with it. This time the weather held off long enough for us to add that something special to all the shoppers that support our Local Farmers Market. We are grateful to all those shoppers that gave so generously. We even found time to play a request at the end. If you would like to choose the music we play then come along to Dunn Village Hall on Friday 27th September at 7.30. You can enjoy a drink and a piece of cake while you listen to the music of your choice (for a small donation towards Macmillan Cancer Support).

Celebrating 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.

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. 2017 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.
