There is no formal audition, but prospective players are required to be able to play to a reasonable standard (roughly Grade 5 or above) and make a regular commitment to the Band's concerts and events.

Currently due to COVID-19 we are keeping rehearsals to existing members, however hopefully soon we can open this up again. Please contact us if you have an interest in joining the band in the future.

We have been rehearsing in a number of different venues due to COVID restrictions, however in non COVID times we rehearse every Wednesday from 8pm - 10pm upstairs in the East Grinstead Social & Ex-Services Club, Station Road, East Grinstead (RH19 1DJ). There is free parking nearby.

All Band members are expected to fund and make their own arrangements for attending rehearsals and engagements. The Band is entirely self-sufficient financially and as such members pay a small subscription towards music and uniform.
