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.

WARBLETON BRASS BAND

Will be supporting Heathfields annual French Street Market on the 26th August. We will be performing first on the stage at 9.30am. So, if you want to beat the crowds, get the best and freshest produce and listen to some fantastic music Station Road at 9.30 is the place to be.

It has been a busy weekend for the band with two engagements and the memorial service for our President Judith.

Saturday was the annual Rushlake Green Flower Show. After a wet morning we were fortunate to enjoy a dry but overcast afternoon. The band is always an important part of this event. Sunday evening was our Proms on the Green. Our Musical Director was on site early to assess the weather. Are we going to be inside or out? A difficult call to make as once the decision is made and the band have set up it would be difficult to move. So after Sian had taken many metrological readings, she felt the risk of the band's music disappearing in the wind and the associated problems that would follow was too high. Therefore with great regret we played in the Marquee. We were joined this year by the Southdown Singers, a choir we have formed a close association over the years. The choirs contribution was appreciated by both the band and the audience. Make sure you all put the 26th July 2020 at 6pm in your diary for next year's Proms on the Green.


Monday was the memorial service for our much loved President who sadly lost her fight with cancer. Judith was the life and soul of many of our concerts and was a very hands on President. We were honoured to play at the service, concluding with a very emotional rendition of Sussex by the Sea. 

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?
