Welcome to the website of Britannia Majorettes and Miniettes of Swindon.
1st Place winners at the Old Town Festival 2006, 2008 and 2009.
We are a junior military style brass instrumental marching majorette troupe. The troupe was founded in Swindon in September 2004 and performed publicly for the first time in May 2005.
We were founded not by the Nolan sisters who ‘were in the mood for dancing’ but the Ellis sisters who were and still are in the mood for marching. Both of the sisters are former majorettes so between them have a great deal of experience and knowledge. We perform drills to our own marching band with some instruments being played by girls as young as 8 and as old as 16.
Previously to joining Britannia Majorettes many had never experienced the pleasure of playing a musical instrument. This goes to show what can be achieved in a short period of time with a lot of hard work and dedication by both girls and team leaders. In addition to the band, Britannia Majorettes centre piece is the formations carried out by the girls ranging from 6 to 10 years of age co-ordinating their footwork with pom pom routines.
In 2015 Britannia Majorettes decided to start another troupe running alongside the majorettes. This group is for girls aged between 4 and 7 years of age where they will the move upto the bigger group. Our new group is called Britannia Miniettes of Swindon.
We meet on Friday evenings between 6.45pm and 9.15pm. If you would like to book us for an event or to join our team please use our contact page.
Britannia Majorette’s have performed at many different events, in and around Wiltshire, including Coming first in the Old Town Festival Procession and opening the British Transplant Games that were held in Bath and The Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford.
