Sponsorship of the Band

What's in a sponsorship package for you?

By sponsoring the band, you will be helping to maintain an important music-making body in the City and County of Swansea. But beyond that, the advantages to you are that the band plays in a variety of locations throughout the Principality and can advertise your company. At the annual concert, previously in the Taliesin Theatre, Swansea University, there is normally a full house (330 seats) and many people in the audience have important business connections.

A few further points you might like to bear in mind if you are thinking about sponsorship:

bullet The band is independent: it has no ties or allegiances to any local authority body.
bullet We pay a minimum of £1,000 per annum to rehearse - the local authority does not help us.
bullet We are currently spending over £600 a year on new music.
bullet We provide a true community band.
bullet Our members come from all over the City of Swansea and beyond (Neath, Llanelli and elsewhere)

Contact Simon Jones on 07449 131680, email: scb@sipa.co.uk, for any further details.


Programme Sponsorship

The Band performs a small number of indoor concerts every year (there is normally one in March, and there is our Main Concert in November or December).

The cost of programme sponsorship is £50.

The package includes:

bullet Sponsor's logo or name inside the programme.
bullet Two complimentary tickets for the concert.

We can also provide an A4-sheet programme for our outdoor concerts, which can be sponsored for £30. This includes the sponsor's logo on the programme sheet. 150 sheets provided.

Contact Simon Jones on 07449 131680, email: scb@sipa.co.uk, for any further details.


Concert Sponsorship

The cost of sponsoring a full concert is £350, whatever the venue.

The package includes:

bullet Six complimentary tickets for the concert plus Host for the evening.

Donations

As an alternative to sponsoring a piece of music or concert as described above, you may wish to give a donation to the band. Any amount however small will be greatly appreciated and will help to keep the band running and providing entertainment to those in Swansea and beyond.


Wills & Bequests

The band is keen for previous band members, or indeed anyone who has enjoyed its music over the years, to help with a small donation in memory of a loved one.

By contacting the Band Secretary (see below) you can get details of how to organise a bequest from a loved one's estate.
