Why Support Us?
Dronfield Genquip Band are a registered charity, and receive no government or lottery funding, instead raising all our own running costs through concerts, events, subscriptions and donations.
Sadly, running a brass band isn't cheap, with our average annual running costs totalling around £10000 without taking into account the maintenance and purchase of instruments, music, uniform and other essential equipment. Your support ensures we are able to continue providing opportunities for music making within the Dronfield, Lowedges and surrounding areas into the future.
