Ian’s Update December 2017

It’s the time of year for Father Christmas to take his uniform to the dry cleaners, the reindeer to the Vet for their annual injections, and to stock up on presents (and a few raffle prizes).

For the Band, as soon as the Village Hall stage been dismantled after two highly successful Autumn concerts out comes the Christmas repertoire, the Carol books are dusted down (and in some cases sellotaped together!) and preparations are underway for a hectic schedule of seasonal concerts. The solemnity of the Remembrance Day concert and Service precedes a hectic schedule involving (at the last count) some 13 engagements up to and including Christmas Eve.

Tickets are selling fast for our popular Taverham Village Hall Christmas concerts on 15th & 16th December, and our popular Candlelit Carol Concert at St. Edmund’s Church on Tuesday 19th December,  so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

Finally on behalf of Taverham Band may I thank everyone for their continued support and wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Ian’s Update November 2017

Taverham Band November 2017

Well, where has the time gone? The one thing about playing in the band is that the concert schedule does come round quickly. Summer was a busy period but it’s now a distant memory as we march into winter. The Band is now completing it’s autumn concerts, and is now rehearsing for our Christmas shows, so it’s not just the shops who start early!

It doesn’t seem five minutes since the Christmas music folders came out last year! The percussion section has to find the sleigh bells again and Nick has to decide what costume he will wear at the Christmas shows. If you want to see Nick in action just check out this link :-

New Ticket Sales Arrangements

Eventbrite Logo

Following some technical issues with our previous online shop provider, we’ve decided to move our online ticket sales to Eventbrite, the world’s largest event technology platform.

The online ticketing process is, if anything, even simpler than the old process and the background administration is much better – online tickets will now be emailed instantly following successful payment.

All popular credit and debit cards are accepted, your data is safe and secure, and you are able to view tickets online at any time and/or use the latest smartphone apps to store/present them as well as printing in the “traditional” way.

For the time being, the Band will continue to absorb charges for online services and card fees, ensuring that online prices remain the same as for retail sales. Concert tickets will “appear” on our Eventbrite Page as and when they are available for online sales.

We hope you enjoy using the new service – however this doesn’t currently support merchandise sales. The level of merchandise sales online was minimal in any case, and CD’s, DVD’s and Joke Books (!) will continue to be available at most of our concert engagements.

Ian’s Update August 2017

June saw the band performing at Patteson Lodge, the Norfolk Guide HQ, for their Garden Party and soon after at Christchurch, Great Yarmouth. Holkham Hall was the next venue for a wedding and the next day to Hardingham for the village fete!

Many thanks to those who have offered to support the band through individual or business sponsorship. As an individual and a taxpayer we can increase any donation by 25% through Gift Aid.  We are delighted that 3-Line Electrical have once again agreed to support our Training Band as a sponsor.

We are seeking support for the main band and training band and if you or your business is interested in being a sponsor of Taverham Band then please get in touch! Individual sponsorship packages start from £250 and business packages from £500 per annum and we acknowledge/advertise the support at all our concerts around Norfolk.

Ian’s Update July 2017

As we step into summer we arrive at a very busy period for the band. We will be travelling far and wide, performing concerts, weddings, festivals, parks and fayres across the region. There are simply too many to mention so please click here for a full listing!

We recently performed at the 14th century, Blackfriars Hall in Norwich for an international audience who were thrilled to see a traditional brass band. It is always a pleasure to play at such venues when you really feel a sense of history.

It is a very testing time for us logistically – thirty plus musicians (and their instruments!) have to be rehearsed, transported and coordinated around holidays, work rotas, and other engagements – you really should see our spreadsheet!
