Do you live in our area (North Wiltshire/Swindon)?
Would you like to play in a big band?

We currently have vacancies for two trombone players that we would like to fill in time for the 2019 season. We also have occasional demand for deputies, to fill in when permanent members are away. So whatever big band instrument you play – please contact us.

In terms of playing ability, we don’t require any specific qualification but, as a guide, Grade 5 would be around the minimum. However, we are more interested in how you fit in with the band and are quite prepared for you to use the opportunity to progress your playing standard. Having said that, if you are already of a higher standard, then you would be even more welcome!

We normally rehearse on a Tuesday evening in Christian Malford, which is close to Chippenham and junction 17 of the M4. We usually have quite a busy and interesting programme of events throughout the year.

If you are interested in trying out with us, please contact our Chairman, Bren Jones, by email at
