Burgess Hill Marching Youth is a self supporting youth organisation run by volunteers who have been members of the bugle band for many years. It has members aged from 8 who practise and perform regularly to local audiences. We perform at carnivals, festivals, school events and compete throughout the country. The band has been running since 1986 and relies on paid performances and donations to continue to run. We have recently introduced a wider range of opportunities to our members with an outdoor persuits weekend and a drum workshop. We hope to be able to travel abroad and perform in Germany next year as well as continuing with our aim to replace all of our instruments and uniforms which have been used and worn for over 20 years.
