The Lincoln District Scout Band is one of the 120 Scout Bands in the UK. It was established just over 20 yrs ago, and is the only Scout Band in the County of

The flag ground is scarlet (the colour of our Band Neckerchiefs) with our familiar (to those who know us) traditional crossed drumsticks, overlaid with the image of an infantry bugle (The band began as a drum & bugle corps, although we play bugles less often today, we concentrate on more melodic music in full harmony). The logo is flanked by the Scout Arrowhead and the Guide Trefoil (as we accept Guides into the band too).
