There is a range of brass instruments available for use by band members including some lightweight, coloured trombones that are ideal for children.
Anyone interested in learning to play an instrument, or percussion, please phone 01822 854888 or contact us at email@example.com
Non-playing members may like to support our fundraising efforts.
Stannary Brass Band is a member of the South West Brass Band Association. It has chosen to be a non-contesting band. The band enjoys taking part in local events throughout the year and provides opportunities for young people to learn to play an instrument and perform in public. Instruments are available for anyone of any age who would like to learn to play. Experienced players are always welcome.
SBB has been successful in being awarded £1000.00 in the Tavistock Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme.
This money will go towards the purchase of a new Bb cornet and music scores.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees
grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to
local community projects.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue
generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
