The Derby Hospitals Band

Thank you to everyone who donated at our various free performance events that took place during December.  We are pleased to have raised more than £700. This will be made available to departments within Derby Hospitals for facilities to enhance the patience experience.


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 2018:

If your new year’s resolutions include:

Dusting off an instrument you haven’t played for a while.

Playing your instrument on a more regular basis

Getting involved in charitable work for a local charity

Then ………

Your local hospitals band needs you.

Founded in 2012, The Derby Hospitals Band is currently looking for additional

players of the following instruments :

Flute       Oboe        Clarinet (3rd)

Brass (Horn, Trombone, Trumpet, Baritone, Euphonium)

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’.

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.
