Thrapston Town 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. 

Thrapston Town Band is seeking donations to help secure the future of the band.

We are largely a self-funded band.  Ordinarily, our income is derived from engagement fees, concert ticket sales and a very busy Christmas season.  Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the band has not been able to perform in 2020, which has drastically reduced our income.  Despite not being able to perform, we have many costs which we still have to cover.  

We are determined to ensure the future of our band so that we can continue to serve our local community.  Any donation you can give, no matter how large or small will be gratefully received.  We also have a number of “Rewards” which can be purchased.

About Thrapston Town Band

Founded in 1858, Thrapston Town Band is believed to be the oldest surviving brass band in the county of Northamptonshire.  The band continues to serve the community of Thrapston and the surrounding area and has an ethos of making music and brass playing accessible to people of all ages through its weekly tuition programme.

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.
