Marching Band

 


 
The British Imperial Military Band are one of the few civilian marching bands in the UK. Uniquely, the band is made up of ex-military musicians from all three British services; The Army, The RAF and The Royal Marines. Our musicians draw upon the experience and knowledge of years of military service to provide the very best in military music.

The sound of a British military marching band is one of the most extraordinary that you will hear. When this is incorporated with precision drill and eye catching uniforms you can be sure that your guests will be in for a treat.

We offer marching bands in all different sizes, ideal for any event from a small cabaret act during dinner to a giant sporting event!

Below is some helpful information about the different sized bands that we can offer.
 

How big does a marching band need to be?

A 12 piece Marching Band is the smallest marching ensemble that we offer. It is rare that we provide a band of this size but have done so in the past for small private events such as birthday parties in restaurants and private houses.
A 17 piece band is perfect as an indoor cabaret act who would usually perform a 10 – 20 minute marching display after a dinner event.

 

Our 12 & 17 piece ensembles have played at events such as:

  • The Grosvenor House Hotel – Mayfair, London
  • Claridge’s – Mayfair, London

 

These are of course just examples, we will work with you to find something within your budget. Please get in touch with us via the contact form where we will be able to advise you on which sized ensemble is right for your event.


A 21 or 25 piece marching band is the most common sized marching ensemble. This is the size of an average military band, you may see a band of this size performing outside Buckingham Palace for the Changing of the Guard.

 

Our 21 & 25 piece ensembles have played at events such as:

  • Hendon College of Policing
  • Henley Royal Regatta

 

These are of course just examples, we will work with you to find something within your budget. Please get in touch with us via the contact form where we will be able to advise you on which sized ensemble is right for your event.

A 31 or 37 piece marching band are the largest that we provide, the sound of a band this size truly is second to none. Bands this size are the same that are used for large military events such as Beating Retreats and Marching Displays.

Our 31 & 37 piece ensembles have played at events such as:

  • Hampton Court – Beating Retreat
  • Norfolk Show main arena band
  • Goodwood Revival track blessing
