Support the Band

Become a Patron


Wherever you are in the world you can now become a Patron of Blackburn & Darwen Band.


For just £20 you will receive an exclusive invitation to a Patrons only Concert to be held in the summer, a chance to meet and chat with members of the band after the concert, discounted tickets for our hugely popular series of concerts at the Thwaites Empire Theatre and a quarterly newsletter keeping you informed of the band’s progress.


Many of our current Patrons have already signed up for this new scheme but we are always searching for additional ones. If you would like to become a Patron (or dual Patronage for £30) please print off a copy of the Patron form and send it to Alan. We would be delighted if you could support the band in our endeavours to become one of the finest bands in the country.
