Crowdfunder, Brass Bands England and baritone player, Melanie Sykes, have teamed up to launch #SaveOurBrassBands, a new national campaign to save hundreds of UK Brass Bands struggling to survive the Covid-19 pandemic.
Before Covid-19 hit, communities would come together to enjoy Brass Band performances in towns and cities across the country. But Brass Bands have seen their main source of income disappear in an instant when they had to stop putting on performances in March in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. 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 talented Brass Bands. Please help us to make sure our bands survive this crisis and will be there to be enjoyed by future generations.
