Lyme Regis Town Band
Lyme Regis Town Band was re-formed in 1981 after a lapse of thirty years and was funded, initially, by a donation from the makers of ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’ which was filmed in Lyme Regis during that year. The band soon established itself as an integral part of the town’s community and social activities. From the original fourteen members, it has grown to a full concert entertainment band of over thirty. The current Musical Director is John Powell, a talent musician and bandsman with over forty years experience.
The Band rehearses on Tuesdays at the Woodmead Halls from 7.45 to 9.30pm and on Thursdays at the Methodist Church Hall, Lyme Road, Axminster, from 8.00 pm until 9.30pm. The Band is always keen to recruit new members and welcomes both experienced players and beginners who are warmly welcomed and strongly supported.
For beginners there is a Training Band which meets every Tuesday from 7.00 to 7.45 p.m. at the Woodmead Halls, Lyme Regis. The Band provides free tuition, instrument and uniform. All that is asked in return is regular attendance, dedication and an eagerness to improve. To protect young people, our teachers are enhanced CRB checked and we operate our own Child Protection Policy. Learners progress through to the main band at the discretion of the Musical Director. At the end of each session, members are encouraged to sit with the main band for part or all of the rehearsal.
