Membership Prices | Brass Bands England

You can become a member of BBE either as an organisation or as an individual

Membership Prices

Band Membership

The price of BBE membership is based on the number of groups within your banding organisation. e.g. If you have a senior band and a youth band, you can purchase the 2-band membership to receive a reduced rate for the second.

If you have a senior band, a youth band and a training band, then you can select a 3-band membership, with a further reduction for the third band.

The number of bands registered is entirely a matter for each organisation, but we appreciate that some are constituted separately within the same umbrella organisation so may wish to set up their own BBE membership separately.  

Local associations and other banding networks are eligible to purchase the 1-band membership. This does NOT cover any of their member bands.

Special prices are available for stand-alone youth/student bands.

Membership Type Annual Fee    Annual Fee with Direct Debit 
1 Band  £144 £140.40
2 Bands £216 £210.60

Individual BBE membership

If your band is not a BBE member you as an individual can join to receive all the benefits of membership on a personal basis. This costs just £30 for the year.

Payment for new memberships

The online registation form allows you to set up an annual payment via direct debit (we also offer a 2.5% discount if you use this) or recurring credit card payment.

However, if you'd rather make a one-off payment you can pay via Stripe (an online payment service) or via cheque. Please note that due to the costs incurred by us when processing a cheque this incurs an additional £25 administration fee.

Renewal of existing memberships

If you have any questions about payments or would like to switch to an auto-renewal for your membership, please contact
