If you are considering joining any part of Cheltenham Silver Band, please do get in touch. We welcome visitors at our rehearsals if you would like to come and meet the MDs and players, even if you simply want to sit at the back and get a feel for how we work.
We do have a range of instruments which are available on loan and so may be able to help you out if you do not have your own. We would invite you to come to rehearsals for a month, with no obligation. If you decide that banding life is a great choice (and we are sure you will!) then there are a couple of short forms we would ask you to complete for our records.
We are a registered charity, and rely on income from events and player donations to cover our overheads such as rent.
Our suggested donations for playing with band are as follows:
£96 per year for an adult in Main Band
£48 for an adult in Training Band or Learner group
£24 for a child (inc students) in Training Band or Learner group.
If you are a UK tax payer, please complete a Gift Aid form, which will give us a much needed boost to these figures. The donations can be made annually, quarterly, or monthly as you with. However, we would never exclude a player who could not donate the above amounts.
