    Hi, I started playing cornet in a youth band when I was 11years old. During my early days I was fortunate to appear on Opportunity Knocks with Redgate Boys Silver Band. After a lengthy break through work and family commitments I joined and played for local SKA band in Devon playing trumpet. I have just turned 60 and would like to join a brass band and get back to reading music. I will be hopefully moving to Bracklesham Bay in West Sussex October this year and would like to join a local brass band. I still have my silver b flat cornet which is 50years old.
    Thanks David

    Hi David,

    There are quite a few bands around that area; the closest are probably Chichester City.
    Your best bet is probably to make contact with a few to say hi and ask if you can go along for a blow, then just take it from there.
    The local association, scaba has contact info/web addresses for their member bands at www.scaba.co.uk/members
    www.brassbandresults.com is a really useful resource, with a map and links to lots of bands' websites.

    Good luck :)
