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 and Thursday (8-10pm) – various venues, so contact us for more information.

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 (children aged 7 years and over although beginner adults welcome) – 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

If you would like to discuss which of our brass groups would be suitable for you, please email us at or call our Secretary on 07885 618410.
