Your Band Needs You!

As many people may know, Lyme Regis Town Band was re-formed in 1981 after a lapse of thirty years, using funds donated to the town by the company who filmed ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’ in the town during that year. The band quickly established itself as an integral part of the local community. A look at the Diary page on this website will show what a busy and integral role it plays in the local area. One of their most popular activities is their regular Tuesday evening Concerts on the Marine Parade in July and August, when they entertain both local people and the many holiday makers who flock to the town in the summer. The band is also much in evidence over the Christmas 100_2524period around the town and during the year regularly supports civic occasions and events organized by the RNLI, the Carnival Committee, the Rotary Club and the Royal British Legion.

Looking to its future, the band is now embarking on a major recruitment drive, as at the present time, several vacancies exist. Chairman Paul Snowball explains, ‘Players of all abilities are most welcome to join, including beginners keen to learn a brass instrument, rusty players wishing to return to playing and more accomplished players. We are particularly keen to encourage ex-band members to consider re-joining.  All new members will be assured of a warm welcome and plenty of support and encouragement’.

An instrument, music and uniform are provided and there is no charge or membership fee.  Rehearsals take place every Tuesday evening at the Woodmead Halls in Lyme Regis from 7.30 pm until 9.30 and you are encouraged to call in if interested. Contact can be made via this website or with the Band Secretary Mrs Gilly Warr, on 01297 442719, or email: gkwarr46@gmail.com.
