The Reading Spring Gardens Brass Band is a registered charity in England & Wales (No. 1197832). As a charity we have a responsibility to ensure that we can sustainably fulfil our charitable purpose. All our members (and our conductor who is also a member) are volunteers, not-paid and kindly donate all their expenses towards furthering the aims and objectives of the charity. Our primary source of income is from the monthly subscription fee that all our members pay. The annual running cost of the charity exceeds this income. To help offset the 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 licensing fees, purchase of new music, and maintenance of musical instruments, uniform and other equipment. Any surplus income is invested in musical instrumentation and music education initiatives such as Watkins Brass and Reading Youth Band which aims to inspire a new generation of brass musicians in Reading and the surrounding area.
