The Southwold and Reydon Corps of Drums is a community-based military style marching band located in the beautiful seaside town of Southwold. We play a range of music from military marches to classical popular songs at events around the East of England.
Although corps of drums like ours originated from the military marching bands that used to send soldiers into battle, we rarely see a battlefield (and if we do, it’s one that hasn’t been used in many years)! As a modern corps of drums we spend our time performing great music at events around Suffolk and the East of England.
We give about twenty performances a year at various festivals, parades, fêtes, remembrance days, ceremonies and Christmas celebrations.
