(1) Bands with property address/ rent e.g. Brass band. Consider the Small Business Grant from your local Council. This is normally paid to business/ Charities where you pay rent on a building and can be worth £10,000. Check the rules to see if your band can apply.
(2) Brass Band England Emergency fund - see BBE website for details/help. Newmoon are supporting this fund with our own money.
(3) If you a member of a music association, we recommend you visit their site e.g. ISM. Some Associations have set up funds to try to help their members e.g. MU Coronavirus Hardship fund (MU members only). Consider Help Musicians UK (an independent charity for professional musicians) or The Royal Society of Musicians.
We know this is not really going to make up for your lost income but we hope it provides some information and help.

Newmoon Insurance Services Ltd
As an independent family owned business formed in 2008, we take care and pride regarding our service, insurance partners, the product we offer you (which we have designed exclusively with insurers) and our relationship with you, our customers.
You can be confident that when you call our Crowborough office on 01892 280323 or 0345 0728535, you will speak directly to a person who really does understand your passion. No cross sell, no hard sell. We will listen to your requirements, talk through options of cover, as we tailor our product to your needs, and then offer you our best quote - which you know will be competitive, as we do not feel the need to promise further discounts or a price guarantee on our website.
All our quotes include IPT and fees and unlike many of our competitors, if you make a change in the policy period you are only charged the additional risk premium. We do not charge any midterm administration fees. In addition if you have a discount code it remains on your policy for the life time of the policy - not a one year discount which many or our competitors apply. Select your passion, from the links above, to explore the options available to you.
At Newmoon, we seek to balance personal service with technology. If you want to talk to us we are available Monday to Friday 09:00 – 17:30 on 01892 280323 or 506884 or 0345 072 8535 (except Bank Holidays).
