Fakenham Town Band


Prices ...

Fakenham Town Band is a non-profit organisation, run entirely by subscription-paying volunteers. The band has running costs such as hire of rehearsal room, purchase & maintenance of instruments, uniforms & music and insurance. These average approximately £6000 per year.
To contribute towards these overheads, a modest charge is made when invited to play at events.

An indication to our charges is as follows: -

Event Type Fee Notes
Church or Religious Service.
Ceremonial event.
From £150 These events typically last approximately 1 hour. The band's contribution would normally be playing the hymns, playing voluntaries for 10-15 minutes prior to the service and performance of 1 or 2 solo items if required.

Garden Fete.
Incidental / Background Music.

From £175 The band will play suitable music from its current repertoire for up to 1.5 hours, split into sessions not exceeding 1 hour. This will not be compered.
Compered Concert
From £250 The band will perform a staged concert with compere, up to 2 x 45 minutes.

Factors that may require adjusting the fee from the standard charge include: -
* The event requiring greater or less musical contribution from the band than is typical for the event type
* Catering for music requests that need special purchase, preparation and/or rehearsal
* If there is extended waiting time for the band between sessions
* Travelling distance outside of the normal 'territory'

Events not in the above categories will be priced individually mainly based on a) the amount of preparation / rehearsal time and b) the amount of playing time. Please ask if your event does not fit into the above categories, and we will be happy to provide a price.
