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.

We enjoyed a busy weekend playing carols for the Opening of the Heathfield Christmas Fun Day on Saturday and our Christmas concert on Sunday.


We must thank John Abbott from the Heathfield Chamber of Commerce for inviting us to play at the Fun Day and the late night shopping. It was a pleasure to be a part of the festivities. We must also thank all those that gave so generously towards The Children's Respite Trust.
Our Christmas concert was another great success. It's always a delight to play to such an enthusiastic audience. This year we not only had the audience singing but participating. We played the popular German folk song Schneewalzer

where the audience traditionally sway from side to side with the occasional gentle rise from their seat. It's been such a positive start to our Christmas season and you can follow us at all our upcoming festive appearances throughout December.

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.

Remembrance Concert 9th November 2019

It is always good to play for such a great cause and at a time when everyone's minds are focused on remembering those that have died for their country. The Royal British Legion rely on the generosity of everyone to help those service men and women in need. The concert started with a march on by 7 members of the band playing The British Legion March. Although the Theme of the concert was remembrance with many old wartime favourites there was a lighter element with hits such as Those magnificent men in their flying machines. It was unfortunate that many were unable to attend due to the bad weather. Let's hope this becomes an annual event to support the Royal British Legion.

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?
