Back of house facility 

Where possible a back of house room is useful for the band to store instrument cases and serve as a changing room. This room is usually occupied before and after the event as well as during any intervals. 

 

Light refreshments are always welcome - particularly at intervals.

 

Parking and Access 

Band members typically travel in private cars. Where possible close vehicular access to the venue for the Band's larger instruments and equipment is appreciated. 

 

Please make the band representative aware of the venue address as well as any loading bays or back stage access locations - Level access is prefered for large instruments and equiptment.  

 

For long distance or overseas events coach parking may be required. 

 

Outdoor Events

From a practical point of veiw, the ground in a performance area needs to be relatively flat for seated events. 

 

Weather shelters such as bandstands or gazebos provide good protection from the elements. In very severe weather the band may require an indoor performance area.

 

The band can provide a Gazebo for our performance at additional cost. If you would like to make an enquiry for the Gazebo Hire along with your booking please let us know.

 

On turf and on other soft ground conditions chairs with thin legs have the potential to sink easily into the ground. A groundsheet in the performance area or hardstanding may be required to avoid this risk.
