The Derby Hospitals Band

Please be patient as we develop this site…….

Thank you for all our members, followers, supporters, and anyone that has even thrown money into our buckets in 2019 – we wish you all a wonderful new year, and thank you for your continued support


We are a small (but growing) wind band, who’s sole aim is raising money for the Derby Hospitals charitable fund.

Let us play for your event

If you would like us to play at your event (fair, fete, fundraiser) please get in touch with us – if we can we will.  We prefer playing indoors, but can also setup outside as well.  Contact us to discuss your requirements –

Recruitment 2020:

Your local hospitals band needs you.

Founded in 2011, The Derby Hospitals Band is currently looking for additional

players of the following instruments :

 Brass (Horn, Trombone, Trumpet/Cornet)

Bass clarinet

Percussion (tuned and ancillary with occasional deputation for our kit player)

We meet weekly on a Thursday evening from 7pm until 8:45pm at the Royal Derby Hospital.

We welcome players of all abilities – including those returning to playing after ‘a rest’.

If your instrument isn’t listed above, please do still get in touch – we may be able to ‘squeeze you in’

All money we raise through performances is donated back to Derby Hospitals, under the auspices of the Derby Hospitals charity.  This is used to fund things which will enhance the patient experience that the NHS itself may be unable to provide.

If you are interested in joining us, please e-mail us in the first instance.
