DURHAM Army Cadet Force Band and Bugles is on the look-out for budding young musicians.
The band wants to recruit 12 to 18-year-olds who play an instrument or want to learn. The band can provide free tuition and instruments if required.

Members played at the Royal Albert Hall in October 2012 alongside the Rifles for their Swift and Bold concert attended by the Duke of Edinburgh.
Last year the band traveled to Belgium, performing in a military tattoo and at the Menin Gate.
Members of the band have the opportunity to attain qualifications, such as Btec Music and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
A band spokesman said: “We want to share these experiences with as many young people as possible so if you are interested come along and get involved.
“The Band and Bugles parade every Wednesday night from 7pm until 9pm at Chester-le-Street TA Centre, Picktree Lane, County Durham, DH3 3SR.
