Our next public


Rushlake Green

Flower Show



27th July

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.

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.

Rushlake Green Big Lunch

We couldn't have wished for better weather for the 6th annual Rushlake Green Big Lunch. Although we played some traditional summer favourites such as Strawberry Fair and the Floral Dance we started with the upbeat Brassed up Funk and finished with Glen Millers American Patrol. We also played The Happy Bandleader but many noticed our very own happy bandleader Sian was missing from the front of the band. She was there, instead of where's Wally it was where's Sian? You would have had to ventured round the back of the band to find her. She traded her little baton for an Eb Bass, and apparently she did very well back there. As a word of caution the back of the band is not for the faint hearted!!!

Our very own Angel in Blue received a highly commended award for her outstanding performance entertaining her fellow scarecrows outside the Horse and Groom Public House. 

Warbleton Brass Band Spring Concert

Warbleton Brass Band would like to thank everyone who attended our Spring Concert and for such warm and appreciative support. This is an annual concert and just one of the many that are given by the band during the course of the year. A big thank you to everyone who dug deep and gave so generously to the retiring collection. We have always believed that as a community band our local concerts should be free. By having a retiring collection we allow the audience to give as little or as much as they are able. We are fortunate to have a B band that incorporates all ages and abilities with the more advanced helping those that are just embarking on their musical journey. The B band performed a selection of Beatles classics to show how well they have progressed as a group.

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?

There are two sides to being part of a Brass band . There's the time to Entertain but there's also a social side, a time to relax.

Most summer engagements allow for the band to relax and enjoy what the venue has to offer. 2018 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.
