Crewe Brass needs a new home!
Crewe Brass have been rehearsing at the Camm Street Centre, Crewe for nearly 15 years but now find themselves looking for a new home.
With the Camm Street centre requesting the band room is vacated by the end of April, the band now finds itself in desperate need of a new practice venue to keep the band rehearsing for their busy schedule of charity concerts and competitions.
Crewe Brass is a registered charity and is made up of 25 brass players and 3 percussion players who meet together twice a week to rehearse. The band has been based in Crewe for over a quarter of a century and has been a fixture of the town’s key events, such as leading the Remembrance Day parade for many years.
Musical director Jamie Meredith confirmed how important it is for the band to have a permanent local place to practice ‘As an organisation we are completely self-funded and don’t have the finances to be able to hire expensive rehearsal space on a regular basis, let alone find storage for our equipment and library. We are looking for a new permanent home in Crewe to enable us to rehearse, store our equipment and prepare for the various community events, prestigious concerts and competitions that band takes part in. We’re proud to be called Crewe Brass and be part of the local community so it’s incredibly important to us that we’re able to stay in the town. ’
