The Ratby Co-operative Brass Band, based in Ratby village in Leicestershire, have a wonderfully rich 100+ year history in the brass band movement.
And we are excited to announce that for the first time, we have been invited to take part in the National Brass Band Championship of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall, on Saturday 2nd October 2021.
This is a huge honour for our band, and we are working incredibly hard to give our best performance in London.
We are asking for your help, as there are a lot of costs that come with competing at the National Finals. As a registered charity, we need help to cover these significant costs.
As with a lot of brass bands, Covid hit us hard, as we were unable to perform at our various concerts, competitions and Christmas carolling. These would normally help us bring in the funding we need, to compete at the highest level.
So please donate what you can, to get our amazing village band to the Royal
