Adopt A Bandsman

Gone are the days of Pit sponsorship and paid players. We work hard for every penny and everyone does it for the love of making music and keeping our traditions alive.

Adopt a Bandsman and help support one of our players.

From as little as £25 per year you can give a heart warming gift to your loved one, and help keep Emley Brass Band going.

As an un-sponsored band we have to keep a very careful eye on our finances, the cost of replacing our cheapest instrument (the cornet) is around the £2500 mark.

We are lucky to have a great treasurer and committee who take care to plan for any eventuality, and we try to responsibly budget for the future. However, it’s tough when new, modern music calls for different mutes and percussion, and as the band improves we invest more and more in our own improvement.

Every adoption comes with a package to enable you to see what your player is up to during the year.

Your bandsman will write to you every quarter to let you know what they’ve been doing and plans for upcoming events, send you a personally recorded Happy Birthday message and, send you a Christmas Card with two tickets to our village Yuletide Concert (worth £12!).

If you wish to adopt a player, please fill out the form below and send a cheque made out to ‘Emley Brass Band’ and can be sent to to:
