Bobbie Clifford

Visual Caption Head

Bobbie has been involved in Drum Corps & Marching Bands since 1983 as part of the Pegasus Corps of Drums, the Guildford Phoenix and the New Surrey Raiders.

Joining Cadence in 1997 Bobbie marched Mellophone and was part of the Corps who won the DCUK Open Class Championship in 1999; she stayed with Cadence until her age out in 2001.

In 2005, after giving birth to her son Thomas, she was persuaded to return to marching with Southern Aurora Drum & Bugle Corps again marching Mellophone along with her partner Paul Riddell who was Drum Major of the Corps.

Since the 2006 rebirth of Cadence, Bobbie has had several roles including Colourguard caption head, visual staff member, visual designer, and a visual caption head culminating in a successful tour to the USA in 2018. Bobbie has also been an integral part of the staff team with our partner’s Oracle Winter Guard since 2016 and is now looking forward to her 6th year with the group as they work towards the planned WGI Tour in 2022.


In 2019 Bobbie began working with the Kidsgrove Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps, she is part of the team that captured the High Visual Award at the recent DCUK Championships.

Having worked with both Chris Law and Joe Rodwell in previous years she is looking forward to seeing what the new design team can create for 2021 and beyond.
