The Reading Spring Gardens Brass Band is a registered charity in England & Wales (No. 1197832). We have a voluntary membership who are our primary source of income. The annual running cost of the our organisation exceeds this income. To help offset this shortfall, additional income is achieved by way of donation fees from music performances at public events such as formal concerts, bandstand / park concerts and recitals. Our income is used to meet the cost of rehearsal space hire, storage hire, appropriate insurances, performance licencing fees, and the maintenance of musical instruments, uniform and equipment. All surpluses are reinvested in our organisation to help fulfil our charitable purposes by way of investments in new music, musical instrumentation and music education initiatives and projects. Such investments are made in the hope that we will inspire future generations of brass band musicians who will help keep brass band music making and the cultural heritage of Reading alive.
