Friends of the Band


If you don't play a brass instrument - don't worry! We still very much welcome your support as a Friend of the Band. As a Friend of the Band you'll receive a regular newsletter detailing Band and its activities, whilst also being entered into our prize draws that run throughout the year to win £50-00 and a bonus ball scheme that is drawn in December. On top of this you will receive preferential entry to our concerts as well as a concert dedicated to all our Friends.

Operating Brass Bands is an expensive exercise. Running costs include music, upkeep and replacement of instruments, uniforms, conductor's fees and transport. To do this we need the help of all our friends and supporters.

To achieve this the "Friends of the MacTaggart's Band" scheme was set up in January 1995. Many friends and supporters have joined and we hope that more will do so in the future. The annual membership is £15-00 and may be paid in one lump sum or by installments throughout the year. All proceeds from the Friends of the band scheme are shared between the two Bands.

While we thank you for your continued support, we also need more "Friends of the Bands", so please encourage all of your friends and relations to join the scheme. Get in contact and we'll send you a membership form:

Steve Keightly 07852 658677 (Senior Band)

Andrew Wood 07887 858982 (Brass Youth & Brass Roots)
