THE TOWN BAND
We are a wind band under the baton of Clive Burroughs. The band has a wide ranging repertoire of music including popular melodies and jazz as well as marches, hymns and classical works. Hear us in Lymington and the surrounding area, at various venues such as Lymington Community Centre, St John’s Church, the town bandstand and on the green at Milford-on-Sea. We perform for and at Charity Events, for example, the RNLI Annual Service and the Oakhaven Hospice Christmas Concert. The Band welcomes all brass, woodwind and percussion players and has recently started a Training Band for learners and returners.
