Join The Band

The band is always keen to hear from brass, woodwind and percussion players. You do not need to be a member of the Fire Service to join and previous concert band or marching experience is not required.

Our musicians are a friendly group from all walks of life. We all share a keen interest in music and join the band for the fantastic opportunities and experiences it can bring.

For some it is the prestigious events we attend and the chance to support the UK Fire Service and the various charities that we support. For others it is the opportunity to improve musically, to be involved in the varied social events, or to be part of our regular tours abroad

This band is Yorkshire's Premier Concert and Marching band and is well established within the region as well as around the UK. With your help we can continue this for many years to come.

How to join

New members need to be Grade 6 standard or equivalent and able to attend our Monday evening rehearsals. We provide your uniforms and give full instruction for the ceremonial activities - you won't be dropped in at the deep end!

If you would like more information or to arrange a visit, please contact the Band Chairman Kevin Fisher MBE in confidence on 07701 335255. Alternatively you can contact us by email at joinus@thefireband.co.uk or speak to us at one of our engagements.

We look forward to meeting you!
