Support Middleton Band

Here at Middleton Band we rely entirely on the support that the town and borough have provided the band since it was formed in 1876 and the continuing assistance of our supporters has been the driving force behind our success
As a self-funded brass band, we always welcome additional support to enable us to continue to survive and work within the local community. There are several ways in which you can easily support us below from no cost options such as using our search engine or shopping via our easy fundraising, to one-off donations and annual subscriptions which feature many benefits to our supporters.

Make a Donation

When you make a donation to Middleton band or Middleton Youth band, you are supporting us with our running costs. It is surprising how much it costs to run both bands just for one year.
With annual expenditure such as band room rent, instrument repair, music stands, new music, instrument replacement, uniform upkeep, contest entry fees, and transportation expenses to name but a few of the considerable outgoings.Both bands welcome any donation, however small or indeed large!



Sponsor equipment

Band equipment is one of the main outlays that the band faces. Buying, maintaining, repairing and replacing items such as instruments, uniforms, stands and music is an expensive affair.

You could make an enormous difference just by sponsoring one or more pieces of equipment!
