Medina Marching Band is a military styled youth marching band based on the Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom. The band was founded in 1976 by the late George Urry and over the years won almost every award possible for youth marching bands. Mr Urry died in 1998 and has been run by a committee headed up by Chairman Kevin Hayward ever since.
The band now celebrating its 41st Year is primarily made up of young people with various backgrounds, upbringings and musical knowledge. The band caters for total beginners and more experienced players alike who desire the opportunity to play a traditional musical instrument in a traditional setting. Medina Marching Band has band members with ages starting from as young as 8 years old and can even boast many entire family memberships.
The band meets every Monday and Wednesday evenings between 7:00pm and 9:00pm at St Georges School, Watergate Road, Newport, however before you come along please give either Kevin or Jan a call before turning up as during the summer season we are very busy performing away from our home base.
