Meet us

The Corps is made up of playing members, trainees and support staff. You can find out a bit more about the playing members below and get a feel for what it's really like to be part of the UK's longest running youth military style marching bands.

"I joined the Corps four years ago because I wanted to learn to play brass. My dad has been part of the Corps for most of his life so I thought i'd give it a try. I now play soprano and like that the Corps gives people the chance to get out there and perform which also helps their self confidence ."

"I've been in the Corps of Drums for over 16 years and have worked my way up to Staff Sergeant Instructor. I play the drum and help others learn to play the drum. During my time in the Corps I've really enjoyed travelling and making new friends ."

"I've been part of the brass section of the Corps of Drums for the last four years. I play Soprano and have made some great friends. I think that the best thing about the Corps has been being able to pick up an instrument and learning to play it. "

"I've just joined the Corps and am looking forward to being part of the brass section. I already play the Cornet at school so wanted to try the Corps of Drums to learn a different brass instrument. You definitely won't catch me playing a drum though!"

"I joined the Corps nine years ago and didn't know how to play an instrument. My Dad has been a member for over twenty five years so I have grown up around the Corps. Over the years I've learnt to play the snare drum, the quads and the trios. I've also really enjoyed going to different places all over the UK."
