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.
2018 CHRISTMAS CONCERT
Our Christmas Concert was such a success we were at full capacity with over 150 people enjoying our annual festive treat. The first half was a greatest hits selection of music we have been performing throughout the year with the second half all things Christmas. There was as always something for everyone including the traditional carols sung beautifully by an enthusiastic audience. We mustn't forget our fantastic training band who performed three pieces of music, and I think we will can all agree shows how well they play together. Anyone who may have been inspired to give playing a brass instrument in the new year just contact Sian or pop in on a Friday night at 7pm.
Each year over the Christmas period we raise money for charity. This year we have nominated the Quicken Trust as our chosen Charity. We would like to thank all those that gave so generously to our retiring collection.
CHRISTMAS FUN DAY
We were pleased to be a part of our towns festive fun day. The great response from all the shoppers showed that a brass band playing traditional carols is a welcome part of the build up to Christmas. We will be back playing for all the shoppers on the 22nd at 11am, so we hope to see everyone there supporting the band.
Happy Birthday to our President Judith?
Thank you for inviting us to play at your birthday celebrations within the beautiful surroundings of Herstmonceux castle (the fact no one knew when your birthday actually was didn't seem to matter). At least your cake gave away your age (39), but we were a bit surprised you didn't wait for the big 40 next year for such a special event. We also thank you for inviting us to join you for a lovely afternoon tea as your guests.
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?
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.
