The Duart Club

The Duart Club is the social arm of the Band. The Band has always engaged in its fair share of social activity. However, it was decided in 2002 following the Band’s 50th Anniversary to draw such activities together under one banner, hence the birth of the Duart Club.

Duart Club membership is automatically available to all playing and non-playing finacial members, past and present.
