Band

The Marching Band meets weekly to practise and regularly participates and leads local events.

There are currently about 24 playing members of the band. In the Drum Section Alice Sullivan is lead drummer. Lucy Suggitt is Lead Bell. The Wind Section instructors are Matt Sheard, John Oliver and Jack Simmonds, who also arranges a lot of the music. Oliver Fowler is playing lead in the brass section.

This year we have played at the Yorkshire County Founders Day Parade. In addition we led the Anlaby Common Christmas Lights Switch On and various other Christmas events at parks and supermarkets. A small group played at the Nat Brass concert in Doncaster and we participated in the Hull Male Voice Choir Concert.

We participated at the Music Festivals, Grace Burnett won a vocal medal, Oliver Fowler won a trophy for Under 12 brass and at the Southern Festival Jack Simmonds won a vocal trophy.

In the National BB GB Showcase Marching Band Championships we were class runners-up and also won the General Musical Effect Trophy.

We are also using the ABRSM Music Medals Scheme within the band for wind players.
