Booking the Band

One of Abington Wind Band’s aims is to help raise money for charitable causes by providing musical entertainment or background music at various functions.

A typical programme would be that we play for about 45 minutes, have a short interval (to catch our breath and have some refreshment.) We would then play for a final session of about 30 minutes. This can be varied, within reason.

This is what we would need:

  • a suitable venue (a hall or outside space)
  • 30 to 35 chairs without armrests.
  • an adjacent power socket for our electric bass
  • nearby parking, with a few very close for bulky and heavy instruments
  • shelter from the rain or direct sun for outdoor venues

Would you like us to entertain your organisation?

Please email Ian B, at

We’d love to hear from you.

It would be helpful to have at least a month’s notice – but the longer the better. Then we’ll have more time to arrange and rehearse a suitable programme.
