Rushlake Green is home to the Warbleton Brass Band Just a stone's throw from Heathfield in the heart of Warbleton Parish in East Sussex.

The band perform a wide variety of music from the traditional through to present day favourites. Whether it be from a musical, film, classical and light popular, the band aim to entertain wherever they play. Warbleton Brass Band has evolved into a modern forward thinking brass band, attracting members from all ages and abilities, but still ensuring they keep some of that wonderful traditional feel with smart uniform, regular events and of course supporting the local community. Even if you have little or no experience of playing a brass instrument, you are welcome to join our successful training band where instruments and tuition are provided for free.  All we ask in return is a bit of home practice and the desire to eventually be part of the main band.  We are always looking for new players to join us and become part of the band's bright future. Meeting every Friday at 7.45pm in Dunn Village Hall, Rushlake Green,TN21 9QE. Come along for a listen and see what you think or alternatively contact our Secretary for more details about this popular hardworking, but fun brass band.

Crowborough Carnival

We were invited to play on Chapel Green in Crowborough during the afternoon celebrations for Crowborough Carnival. The only problem was a Fun Fair was also invited. Now anyone who has visited a Fun Fair will know part of the atmosphere is the "loud" music playing on each of the rides. Unfortunately we were surrounded by the fairground rides all playing their own music. Normally a 30 piece brass band can out blow most background noises.......but with their fingers very much on the volume knob we didn't stand a chance. Despite our musical competition we played a fantastic variety of upbeat popular music.

Fantastic concert last night. Huge thanks to everyone who braved the weather to join in our Macmillan fundraiser. We raised over £500. The idea of the audience choosing the music has proved a great success. We hope there wasn't too much disappointment if anyone was unable to make a choice but with a large audience and limited time not everyone was able to have their choice played. The popular choices were all upbeat giving the band little chance to catch their breath, so when Melita Cullis (Amy's mum) requested the hymn Melita (Eternal Father, Strong to Save) we enjoyed a small respite. We must also thank those that couldn't make the concert for their requests and kind donations. Our next concert is our Service of Remembrance also in the State Hall on the 11th November at 7.30pm. we hope to see you all there.
