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. Our Musical Director is David Tozer, a talented musician and bandsman with many years experience.
Rehearsals take place every Tuesday at the Woodmead Halls from 7.45 to 9.30pm. The Band is always keen to recruit new members and welcomes both experienced players, “rusty” players returning after a break and beginners all of whom 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. also at the Woodmead Halls, Lyme Regis. The Band provides free tuition by band member, Ellis Holt, plus an instrument and uniform. All that is asked in return is regular attendance, dedication and an eagerness to improve. To protect young people, our teachers hold enhanced BDS certificates 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, trainees are encouraged to sit with the main band for part or all of the rehearsal. For further details regarding the Training Band please contact email@example.com in the first instance.
