The Longridge Band is an ambitious and committed Championship section brass band.

We regularly stage concerts to full houses across Lancashire and the North West. The band also takes part in prestigious regional and national contests and features in high-profile events such as the Preston Guild. Can you imagine a Field Day or Christmas without a band?

The band incurs many costs throughout the year, and over the past few years these have spiralled. Examples of these include:

  • purchasing new instruments/ instrument repair
  • purchasing new music
  • insurance
  • gas and electricity bills for the bandroom
  • uniforms

We are currently looking for new patrons to help cover
these costs. You could help us by donating as little as
£30 per year.

Below are the benefits of joining our patrons scheme. Please contact Susan Newby if you are interested in joining our scheme.
