Running a band the size of Castleton Brass is expensive – the costs of buying music and buying and maintaining instruments quickly mount up. The cost for booking the whole band begins at £250, although there is sometimes some room for negotiation. We will also consider fee-sharing arrangements. Contact us to discuss your needs – we’re very friendly!
To raise funds for our National Finals entry the band has launched a ‘Sponsor a Player’ initiative (there are twenty five brass musicians, three percussionists and a musical director).
Businesses and individuals are invited to sponsor a musician for £50.00. Anyone interested should contact us to discuss which instrument and position they would like to sponsor
We are always very grateful for any donations which are made to help towards improving the band, its members and equipment. If any business or individual wishes to sponsor the band then please get in touch.
All donations and sponsorship will be acknowledged on our website.
