Royal British Legion Bands

There are over 50 Legion bands around the country.  They range from full concert show bands, like the Central Band, to smaller youth marching bands. Each band is run independently and all funds are raised by the bands themselves.

The Central Band of The Royal British Legion

The Central Band of The Royal British Legion is the Legion's flagship band. They are regular performers at the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Band's concert repertoire covers the musical spectrum and they have links to over 50 other Royal British Legion Bands from all over the UK - from concert show bands, brass ensembles, pipe and drum, to marching carnival bands.

If you are looking for a band to enhance the sense of occasion at an event, please contact the Central Band to discuss how they could help.

Youth bands and majorette troupes

The Royal British Legion has a number of youth bands and majorette troupes in England and Wales.  In addition some adult bands are happy to accept youth members and may even teach you to play a musical instrument.

You must be a Youth Associate Member of The Royal British Legion once you are established in the band.  You can join some bands or majorette troupes below the age of 12 but you will be expected to join and become a Youth Associate Member when you reach 12.

Simply contact the National Youth Officer who can advise you if there is a band or majorette troupe in your area.
