The London Stedfast Association Bugle Band
The Bugle Band in London has had a fairly quiet year, we still have our hard core of original members and a few new ones, but we are usually joined for both our rehearsals and events by our good friends from Brighton.
We performed on the 12th of March at Earlsfield for the annual Girls Brigade church parade, an event we have been playing at for several years. They have already asked us to provide a band for the event next year.
We once again provided a band for the London Borough of Bexley on the 25th of June, at their annual Civic Parade where the band was augmented by a few of our friends from Malvern. We really appreciated their input and thank them for driving all that way to help us.
As I mentioned earlier, we are regularly supported by our friends from Brighton and we also join them for their rehearsals and performances to enable both of us to parade a viable band. Both bands are in need of new members so if any of you reading this know anyone who may be interested, please put them in touch with us.

The Bugles & Drums of the Stedfast Association (BADOTSA)
The Bugles & Drums of the Stedfast Association (BADOTSA) are a compendium of local Stedfast Association bands
e.g. London, Brighton & Newport etc. We meet throughout the year to practice our common playing itinerary and to
make sure players do not wander too far from the music, as it is written. We meet at several interesting locations
e.g. RAF Halton Aylesbury Bucks and the STEAM Museum at Swindon. In addition we meet regularly at the BBHQ situated
at Felden Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire (for our eastern members) and at Worcester (for our Western members) with
some attending both in their capacity as instructors or just very keen.
We carry out various band tasks, on a local and national basis, supporting each other if we are able to do so.
