1st Hook Scout & Guide Band are based in Surbiton, Surrey.
The band meets every Monday evening, and takes part in several local events each year as well as locations further afield.
Their music list includes everything from traditional military marches to full concert band pieces. This means they can perform as a marching band or concert band depending on the requirements of an event
New members can join at nine years of age, and are given an instrument to use if they don't already have their own. Instructors teach them basic music and marching skills, and they can play along with the main band as soon as they're able to.
The band was originally formed in 1938 and celebrates it's 80th anniversary in 2018.
