Our Aim

As a community band the Ulster Grenadiers stride to facilitate for everyone who shows an interest in learning, and moving our culture forward through understanding and achievement. Through the performing and work within the band we create confidence in young members who would otherwise be lost for something to do.
 
We supply an avenue for creativity to our members which has found us playing music from world cultures, far and near, Irish to Canadian. As a band we aim to stay at the forefront of diversity in the scene through drum settings, fluting, style and appearance.

Ulster Grenadiers Competition:

will commence in our home town at 7.30 pm Friday 4th September 09
