The London Massed Bugle Band is a marching band comprised of young people aged 11 to 25 who are members of The Boys' Brigade, Girls' Brigade, Girls' Association and Amicus.

Our Band is made up of young people who choose to play either the snare drum, cymbals, bass drum, bell lyre or bugle. They are trained by experienced musicians who have first hand experience of the benefits of being a part of the Band.

The London Massed Bugle Band was formed in 1982 for the Centenary of The Boys' Brigade and over the years has taken part in London events such as Jubilee celebrations and appearances at the London Marathon and Lord Mayor's Show, promotional Boys' Brigade and Girls' Brigade events including television recordings, BB Displays and Beating Retreat events, and tours to France, Belgium, Holland and the North West of England.

If you are a current Boys' Brigade, Girls Brigade, Girls' Association or Amicus member, becoming a part of the Band would benefit you in many ways, including musicality, leadership opportunities and as part of the badge work schemes. As a branch of our parent organisations we can offer you the opportunity to further your own development within your Company and provide you with the chance to try new and interesting challenges and experiences.

"Being involved with the London Massed Bugle Band is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of a large marching band, which might not always be possible at local level. The Band often performs at high profile events in front of thousands of people which is such a buzz to be a part of!"

Although we are predominantly formed from groups within London, we have frequently worked alongside friends from other areas of the UK. The London Massed Bugle Band is fantastic opportunity for young people, offering an exciting array of opportunities for members of our parent organisations.
