The Hornchurch Drum & Trumpet Corps are recruiting! Any boys or girls aged from 9 years upwards are welcome to come along and see us. We will provide free tuition and a free loan uniform and instrument. We currently have vacancies in all sections, drums, trumpets, cymbals, bell lyres etc. You do not need to be able to play already, we will teach you.

The band perform at shows, carnivals, festivals and other events all over the region and next year will be competing in band competitions around the country.

Our practices are between 10am and 1pm at the Robert beard Youth Centre in High Street Hornchurch.

The band, which was formed in 1959 have performed all over the UK and Europe over the past 55 years. They hold regular social events for the members and their families and make sure everyone has a fun and rewarding time.

As a registered youth charity the band is totally self funding and all its staff and instructors are fully CRB/DBS checked.
