years, owing to the bands overwhelming development and increased
popularity, we have noticed a significant growth in the number of
engagement requests received. We are finding it increasingly difficult
to meet all of these requests. So in order to cope with the demand we
have restructured our engagements/concert bookings criteria.
Our organisation now encompasses three amateur musical groups involving
around 60-80 people:
• The Harwich Royal British Legion Brass Band.
• The Harwich Royal British Legion A120 Ensemble.
• The Harwich Royal British Legion Saturday Morning Music School.
In order to sustain these groups with the ever increasing burden this
places our finances we rely solely on the funds we are able to generate
• Charitable grants.
We feel it is very important to maintain our profile and support the
local community in and around Harwich, so each year we:
1. Allocate a set number of engagements (usually for charitable
organisations) that we will undertake completely free of charge.
2. For any further charitable requests we charge a set charitable fee
(plus travelling allowance if outside of our local area).
3. Any additional requests outside of the above criteria are then
discussed by the bands committee and quoted accordingly.
We consider each request based on its merit and the bands prior
commitment schedule. We also in exceptional circumstances endeavour to
undertake extra charitable engagements or short notice bookings.
I would ask you, that if for any reason we are unable to fulfil your
engagement on this occasion, to place a request via the bands booking
form as soon as possible for the future, even if you are unsure of an
exact date at this time.
