What a day! It was a real privilege to perform in front of Royalty and support Scoutings high achievers on their special day in Windsor Castle. Princess Beatrice was in attendance and many people saw Her Majesty the Queen looking down on the parade. The band members and leaders did themselves, Tonbridge & Scouting proud. Comments…
Welcome from the Bandmaster
Who do you know that would like to play in a marching band, perform all over the UK and make friends for life?
In January 2015, the 17th Tonbridge Scout & Guide Band entered a new era. We put down our traditional bugles and fifes, and started from scratch as a fully chromatic band.
Today, the band features a range of instruments including cornets, horns, euphoniums, trombones, clarinets, saxophones, flutes, cymbals, marching bells and drums. Our members are aged 7 to 24 and we’re over 45 musicians strong.
We’re proud to say that the band is open to all young people in the Tonbridge area. New members are welcome at any time, instruments are provided and life-long friends are guaranteed.
Martin Rapley, Bandmaster
