Corps of Drums

Music in Nottinghamshire ACF is available in many forms to adults and cadets no matter what their ability under the command of our Director of Music, Major Steve Greaves

Instruments are available with free tuition and we cover all forms of musical make up, Wind Band, Brass, Drums, Bugle, Flute, and many more. It does not matter if you wish to form a Pop/Rock group, Jazz Band, or Choir, the help is there fore the taking.

All you have to do is ask, you may feel shy or nervous but that is perfectly natural, we all go through different emotions. No one will make fun of you, after all we have been beginners once.

Parade Times

Corps of Drums

Tuesday evenings at Ruddington Detachment 1900 hrs to 2100 hrs.


Twice each year there is a Music Camp for National Music where training is intense over a week and this enables everyone to improve their own ability and be able to perform to the same standard as the rest of Britain. The camps also include skill at arms, drill and turnout and several non military activities such as swimming and many more.


BTEC is offered to every sixteen year old or above, as well as a skill for your Duke of Edinburgh award, and for good measure you can achieve grades, APC Star Passes and maybe a trip abroad. Why not give it a try, you may never know what you could have achieved.
