Britannia Junior Band

The Britannia Band has been going for 150 years but has never had a junior band until now. With Music Promise funding 2013 has seen the birth of The Britannia Junior Band. This was the brain child of Martyn Goodman who saw the possibility for a new departure and has thrown the doors open to young members of 11 to 14 years old.

The junior band started with seventeen members and now has over twenty in its ranks. Most instrumentalists are at the very beginning of their musical journeys. 

Britannia Junior Band

After just a few short months the Britannia Junior band are performing regularly across the North West and sometimes in unusual places. On bank holiday Monday they delighted crowds on the train from Derry~Londonderry to Coleraine with some cheery tunes.

On Marathon day they were there to help the runners keep in step.

Overall, the new band is full of new friends who are having lots of fun.
