Woodley Concert Band
Alexandra Gardens Bandstand, Windsor, July 2021

Support the Band

Woodley Concert Band has been an important part of the local community for almost 50 years and for many years we have operated a Friends scheme to enable our audience and supporters to be a part of our band community and to support the band and its charitable aims.

We have recently reviewed the Friends scheme and now provide two different ways in which you can be part of our music-making, enjoy some special supporter-only benefits and contribute to the ongoing life of the band.

Friends

For those who wish to enjoy some of the benefits we are able to provide, be part of our band community and also show your support for the band.

In return for a minimum of £15 per person or £25 per household you will get:

  • Priority Access to the Box Office one week before it opens to the general public for our three main concerts in Spring, Autumn and at Christmas, giving you first pick of your favourite seats.
  • Your name listed in the Friends section of our concert programmes
  • A twice-yearly newsletter updating you on the latest band news and activities
  • An invitation to a supporters-only pre-concert talk by our musical director prior to one of our main concerts
  • An invitation to the informal ‘performance’ at the end of our annual workshop repertoire day
  • The opportunity to vote on an ‘audience choice’ item of music for one of our main concerts
  • The opportunity to suggest your favourite Christmas song / carol for possible inclusion in our Christmas concert

Patrons

For those who are willing to make a larger financial contribution to support the band’s charitable aims.

In return for a minimum of £30 per person or £50 per household, you will receive:

  • All the benefits of that our Friends get (listed above), plus:
  • Your name listed in the Patrons section of our concert programmes
  • A twice yearly video update showing you what the band has been doing in the past 6 months, including behind the scenes video from rehearsals and excerpts from some of our concerts and performances.

If you would consider becoming a Friend or Patron of the band then we would be incredibly grateful for your support.  You can join as a Friend or Patron by completing this form.
