Introducing BYMB

Welcome to the website of the Bournemouth Youth Marching Band. We are a community band and rehearse on Wednesday evenings usually at the Butchers Coppice Activity Centre near Bear Cross. We sometimes meet at Rossmore Leisure Centre.

Bands such as BYMB are an important part of our cultural heritage. We  have a key role involving and representing our local area, supporting social cohesion and strengthening community identity.

BYMB - much more than just a band. We play in a wide range of performances including concerts, arena displays, carnivals and parades. This makes us unique in the local area.

There are also social events, adventure and fun activities for our members to enjoy. Every 2 or 3 years we run a Band Tour abroad.

The Band's youngest members are just 8 years old and many join the band with little or no previous musical experience.

The Band's Management Team have, between them, over 150 years of brass band, wind band and marching band experience.

We use brass, woodwind and percussion instruments and perform our music in a traditional style.

We play great music from classical through traditional marches and film music to modern pop. Our repertoire is regularly refreshed for our events throughout the year. BYMB is a great opportunity for young musicians to broaden their experience and develop their playing skills.
