The Brass Band of Central England is one of the most widely respected music groups in the Midlands and offers a unique opportunity for those wishing to promote their organisation while supporting their local community.
The band's main focus is supporting the local community and charities through its music-making. Over the past 15 years, the band has helped raise funds directly for NSPCC, Baby lifeline, Mencap, Myton Hospice, Coventry Snowball Appeal, Round Table, Muscular Dystrophy, British Legion, The Salvation Army, BEN and National Children's Homes to name a few.
In the last 4 years, the band has raised in excess of £130,000 for local Charites and performed to over 1.5 million listeners
As well as performing in many concerts throughout the year the band has a rich history supporting radio and TV and has been recorded many times by the BBC as well as featured on radio and TV across Europe, USA and Australia.
For example, the band was featured on the BBC's Big Weekend and featured on the BBC’s Songs of Praise no less than twelve times. This includes the ‘Big Sing’ in Millennium Square Birmingham to over 10000 people broadcast live on national TV.
These TV programmes are repeated on a regular basis and reach as far as Australia. Annually the band supports the BBC Coventry & Warwickshire ‘Christmas at Coventry’ which is broadcast to over 300,000 people over the Christmas period.
Over the last 40 years, the band has been fortunate to be supported by both Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover. This support has enabled the band to be more effective in its work and has increased the profile and tradition of live brass band music to the full. Therefore, we recognise that in order to progress further we need financial help.
There are numerous opportunities the Brass band of Central England can do to support your organisation. Also, support can range from small donations to corporate sponsorship and in some cases with no direct finance outlay!

"The performance was superb and it is easy to understand why the band has enjoyed so much success in recent years. From my point of view every aspect right from our initial dialogue through the final performance was carried out in a very professional manner.
"It was through The Brass Band of Central England that I came to fully appreciate the fellowship of “Banding”. Many thanks to the band for their friendship and professional camaraderie over the years from across the pond. Here’s to many more years of great music-making! Congratulations!"
