The BB and GB together run an excellent band, and in 2014 they retained their overall status of being National Champions, winning every category of award they could and overcoming some very stiff opposition in the process. They play regularly at external events, and there are many opportunities to learn an instrument within the Brigades. Children can begin learning from the age of 8 (and regularly do!).
