Event description

Earn funds for your band this Christmas! In this virtual drop-in session, we'll introduce this year's crowdfunding campaign, #BrassBandsAtChristmas, in partnership with Crowdfunder.

The 2021 campaign was a roaring success, raising over £50,000 for brass bands across the UK as well as raising the profile of banding amongst the general public.

Throughout this year's campaign, bands will be supported with free coaching and fundraising advice from the experienced Crowdfunder team, as well as ongoing support and promotion from BBE HQ.

Tune in to find out more about how you can benefit and how to register your band. Book your place below to join us on Zoom for your chance to put your questions directly to the team, or join us via livestream on the BBE Facebook page.

To stay up to date with campaign updates as well as share your own progress, you can join the #BrassBandsAtChristmas Facebook Group.

What is Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a way to raise money for good ideas. People are increasingly bypassing more traditional funding routes such as bank loans or grants and turning instead to the people around them and in their community to support their venture.
