Stalybridge Old Band is part of a national initiative launched by Brass Bands England to save the many UK brass bands who are struggling to survive through the COVID-19 pandemic. Brass bands are a core of their local community, and many risk disappearing altogether without your help. 

 

Why are we crowdfunding?

Our brass band risks folding or serious monetary decline because we have not been able to meet or play since march, losing all of our yearly income

Your donations will be used to keep the band going, through these awful unprecedented times

 

About Stalybridge Old Band

We are the oldest civilian band in the world, founded in 1809. Our signature tune is "it's a long way to Tipperary" written by Jack Judge and performed for the first time in the building opposite our band room.

About Save Our Brass Bands


Brass bands exist in every corner of the UK, with over 30,000 people of all ages and standards taking part in weekly activity – rehearsing, performing and providing entertainment for their local community.

But we risk losing this forever.

Brass Bands saw their main source of income disappear in an instant when they ceased being able to perform in March in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Months later, we still don’t know when normal performances will be able to take place. A significant loss in income over the Summer months, paired with necessary expenditure needed to make rehearsal spaces Covid compliant means that many Brass Bands are in a perilous financial situation.

Without urgent support, we could lose our nation’s amazing Brass Bands. Please help us to make sure they survive this crisis and will be there to be enjoyed by future generations.
