Recruitment :

If your new year’s resolutions back in the bitter cold winter included :

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 :

Brass (Horn, Trombone, Trumpet)

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

Alto sax (1 of, to bring the section back up to strength)

We also welcome inquiries from wind instruments not mentioned above.

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.
