Sponsorship

What’s in a sponsorship package for you?

By sponsoring Stroud Area Wind Orchestra, you will be helping to maintain an important music-making group in Stroud, Gloucestershire.  The band plays in a variety of locations throughout Gloucestershire and can advertise your company.

Here are a few points to bear in mind if you are thinking about sponsorship:

  • The band is independent and has no ties or allegiances to any local authority body.
  • We pay over £1,000 per year to rehearse – we do not receive any help from the local authority for this.
  • We aim to spend a minimum of £500 per year on new music.
  • We provide a true community band with members coming from all over the Stroud area and beyond (Nailsworth, Dursley, Chalford and elsewhere).
  • The band performs three indoor concerts each year (Christmas, Spring and Summer), with our main concert being in June or July each year.
