4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

We believe that the brass band movement needs a strong, independent voice – one led by 4BR.

4BR is unique - and will never become a ‘pay to access’ site.

Your support will enable 4BR to remain a free to access, strong and independent voice.

More and more people are reading 4BR on a daily basis, but we want to offer them much, much more. New developments and ideas add value to the 4BR experience – but also require extensive investment.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.
