We need your help so that more people can enjoy all the amazing events we can offer. We need to repair, maintain and buy new instruments.

We've done zoom, we’ve played in car parks and fields, we've made isolation tracks, we've played on our doorsteps and we've kept in touch with our members and supporters during lockdown. Covid might have thrown us a curveball, but we're still here and we're still making music.

We are Tewkesbury Town Band.  We cater for members of all ages who enjoy making music in a fun and friendly atmosphere.  We aim to provide musical opportunities and education for all through our Beginner, Intermediate and Senior bands, providing free instruments and tuition to over 50 members.  We play at local as well as national events from beer festivals to tea concerts to weddings.  The senior band competes in the 4th section and recently took part in the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain.

Obviously the last year has been very difficult for any group activities, but we have managed to maintain rehearsals by meeting online, in very small groups and as a distanced full band as the regulations allowed.  We entered the Pershore Midsummer Brass 2021 virtually, we had our first live performance in a field in Aston on Carrant in July and we were able to play at Northway Fete in August.  The Intermediate Band were able to perform at St Nicholas' Church Fete.  We have bookings in place for Christmas carolling, and our Christmas concert in the Roses Theatre, but we lost 18 months of paid performances and ticket sales.

Now we are looking for a different kind of brass…

We need your help to make it possible for more people to access all the amazing opportunities and experiences we can offer.  We need to repair, maintain and buy new instruments.  With your help we can engage and enthuse the next generation of musicians. We can enhance the lives of people in the Tewkesbury area regardless of their current circumstances.  Can you help support our return to banding after lockdown?

#BrassBandsAtChristmas

This Christmas, Brass Bands England will be leading another national campaign with the support of Crowdfunder.
Brass bands exist in every corner of the country, with over 30,000 people of all ages and standards taking part in weekly activities – rehearsing, performing and providing entertainment for their local community.
Without urgent support, 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 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and many are still struggling to survive. A significant loss in income, paired with necessary expenditure needed to make rehearsal spaces Covid-safe, means that many bands are in a perilous financial situation.
#BrassBandsAtChristmas showcases our country’s amazing brass band heritage whilst also raising funds to protect its future, something that is vital after the struggles that bands of all ages and abilities have and continue to face. And what better time to celebrate brass bands than at Christmas? A period when bands traditionally go out "carolling" to spread festive cheer to our communities. That’s why we’ve joined hundreds of bands across the country in fundraising for our future.
