Playing with the Band

Interested in playing with Chichester City Band?

Are you an experienced player? Rusty returner? Absolute beginner who has always wanted to learn? We have three groups of different standards, with experienced musical directors/ brass trainers to help you develop, whatever your level. (But please note that we’re a traditional brass band – no woodwinds or strings!)

Chichester City Band: Our senior contesting band for experienced brass players.

  • Rehearsals every Tuesday (7.45 – 9.45pm) at the Regis Centre (Bognor Regis) and (for selected contesting players only) Thursday (8-10pm) at the Basil Shippham Centre (Chichester).

Chichester City Community Brass: Our community band for players who can already read music and are ready to join an ensemble (ideally at least Grade 3 standard) – ideal for learners who are progressing or ‘lapsed’ players who want to rediscover the joy of making music.

  • Rehearsals every Thursday (7.30-9pm) at The Lodge, Graylingwell, Chichester

Chichester City Elementary Brass: A group for beginners (adults and children aged 7 years and over)– no experience needed but should be willing to commit to regular attendance and practice.

  • Classes from (6.45 -7.30pm) every Thursday during school term time at The Lodge, Graylingwell, Chichester
