Join the Team in 2013
We are a Show Band (Drum Corps) consisting of Brass (Horn Line), Drumline (Battery), Auxillary Pit Percussion (Front Ensemble) and Guard (Dance) sections. Founded in 1995 the organisation provides an interesting and healthy hobby for young people of all ages, through a structured and positive learning environment, helping to install the values of discipline, dedication, commitment and respect which are carried into the community with a true sense of purpose and pride.
Lancers are registered as a Local Authority approved youth group and are members of the British Youth Band Association (BYBA) and Drum Corps United Kingdom (DCUK) in whose approved national contests we compete, gaining recognition for our performances. We provide entertainment for the general public through shows, performances, concerts and competitions.
Each year the staff design and co-ordinate a musically and visually sophisticated programme fitted to the talent levels of our members. Throughout the winter, fundamentals of music and marching are taught and our members begin learning the program. By late spring the finishing touches are added and it is time to take the show on the road. Throughout the summer we perfect and fine tune the show right through to the British Finals in October!".
Some recent high profile appearances have included leading the "Olympic Torch Parade", our fanfare team performing at the Christmas Lights Switch on, plus appearing in "McDonalds Great Tastes of America" commercial, "The Kleeneze Sales Conference" and performing infront of 150,000 people at "The Goodwood Festival of Speed" alongside the likes of Brian May from Queen.
