You’re never too old to enjoy a marching beat!
Fleetwood Old Boys Band welcomes musicians who were former Sea Cadets, or who have been in other drum and bugle marching bands.

They’re looking for new recruits and volunteers to join their ranks, playing drums, bugle and glockenspiel, to help them to entertain at events and functions in the area.
They have a weekly band practice on Wednesday night at Fleetwood Conservative Club at 7.45pm – if you’d like to join, watch or ask about them performing at your event you’re more than welcome to go along.
If you’d like to book the band, just phone Dave Southwell (the band Chairman). He will make sure that enough members are available for your date and confirm the booking. Fleetwood Old Boys Band will try to meet your request – sometimes due to work and holiday commitments it might not be possible.
The Band, especially the buglers, are sounding better than ever. They’ve been busy learning a new tune, revising one or two old favourites and practising hard. The quieter winter months give the band time to practice new routines.
