Are you aged 8 years or over?
Are you a Cub, Scout, Explorer, Brownie or Guide?
Would you like to learn a musical instrument?
Then join Stanley’s Own Scout and Guide Band!

You may have seen us out and about at some of our annual events, including leading the Copythorne Carnival. We hold a Christmas concert every year in December as well as taking part in other local events each year.

We practice each week at Copythorne Scout HQ on Thursday evenings. We’re a very inclusive group with members from across scouts and Girlguiding. No instrument or experience is required, just enthusiasm. We can provide instruction with the help of our instructors in the band.

For more details, please contact them at [email protected]. There is a Facebook group for band members, just click here. You can keep up to date with the band on their Facebook page and their Twitter feed. Join either of them today for updates of their work, a chance to meet the team and find out what they’re playing at the moment.

Centenary Band

Stanley’s Own Centenary Band started in 2009 from former members of the Stanley’s Own Scout and Guide Band. Originally only to mark the 100th anniversary of the scout group in 2010 they never stopped!

A traditional drum and bugle band at heart, they’re a Scout Active Support group and help support scouts through their skills.

Spot the Centenary band at the numerous carnivals, fetes, fairs and events across our area. They’ve take part in remembrance services, lantern parades and fetes in the neighbouring towns.

To find out more you can contact Clive Wingham on 023 8081 1160

Find them on Facebook or check out their site.
