What we are about...

The 37th Kingswood Drum & Bugle Corps is dedicated to providing superb musical opportunities to young people between the ages of 8 and 25 years.  We provide a two tier structure with our Cadet band feeding into the senior part of the organisation. The transition from Cadet to Senior Corps starts around the age of 13 and members can then participate up to the age of 25. We concentrate on providing a fun activity, while at the same time being able to enhance musical education. Members have taken the opportunity to audition in the USA, and have performed with some of the top Drum Corps on Drum Corps International circuit (DCI).


    The Drum Corps season starts towards the end of October when we begin to learn the music for our yearly performance. Easter marks the move outside for practices and this is when we start learning the drill. The music and drill then come together to make our show. Throughout the summer months of June & July we compete in competitions on the BYBA (British Youth Band Association) and DCUK (Drum Corps United Kingdom) circuits. The season culminates with DCUK Finals mid September and BYBA Finals at the begining of October. This timetable of events is designed to accommodate people who work and have extra studies to complete.
