Find a branch or club near you

You don’t have to live near a Royal Marines Unit or establishment to be a part of the Royal Marines Association. With over 80 branches and interest groups in the UK and overseas, you can be sure to find a warm reception near you. »

Our branches are where our members get together and where local welfare advice is given. You can transfer to different branches as you re-locate, or visit other branches if you're travelling around. If you cannot reach any of our branches, joining our HQ Roll will keep you up-to-date and enable you to continue receiving membership benefits. Membership will also enable you to apply to join RMA Clubs and Societies.

    RM Musicians

    A newly formed Branch to represent both Former and Serving Royal Marine Musicians. No subscription fee!

    All new Royal Marine Musician recruits will now be given the chance to join our RMA Musicians branch during their initial training period at CTC Lympstone and also during their musical training at The School of Music Portsmouth.

    Two main events so far will be the Royal Marines Band Service reunion in October each year and also the Band Service Memorial weekend concerts in Deal Kent held in July each year. It is also hoped to attend the Remembrance day in November at London each year.

    As well as the above we hope to arrange camping weekends within the British Isles when members can take part in such things as sponsored walks and cycle rides all in aid of raising funds for the RMA.

    RMA Concert Band

    Purpose: Committed to providing the highest standard of performance and musical excellence in the same way as the RM Bands, the Royal Marines Association Concert Band eagerly seeks to recruit new members, thereby offering the opportunity to continue playing to all former Royal Marines Musicians, and to enjoy the comradeship experienced in the Royal Marines. 

    Comprising mainly former RM Musicians as well as other members of the Corps family, musicians from other Services and invited professional and experienced civilians, this band is going from strength to strength. The band rehearses weekly on a Thursday evening in the Volunteer Band Room in HMS Collingwood in Fareham and performs engagements on average every month from concerts at popular venues, mainly in the south of England, to prestigious commemorative events at venues such as Lancaster House and Westminster Hall in London.
