Why Us

We provide specialist musical instrument insurance and insurance for bands, groups and orchestras. Our products are designed by us specifically to meet the needs of our customers, we then only use 'A' rated insurance companies to ensure that you receive the best possible claims service.

Our aim is to provide you with a personal service which combines both a competitive premium and cover. Whilst some competitors compete for your business on price, often with a low introduction offer, we believe that cover is as important and must reflect your special interest and needs e.g. of a musician. Whether you select New Moon or not, we strongly recommend you look into the policy details as not all "specialist" music instrument cover is the same.

The New Moon team are musicians themselves and all are insurance experts. We attend music events around the country and support music retailers, Associations  and repairers throughout the UK. We are members of the National Association of Musical Instrument Repairers and in the first 10 years of our Band Aid programme, provided support of approx £80,000 to eligible Brass Bands, with our contribution continuing to grow year on year.

New Moon Musicians Insurance was founded in June 2008 and in 2023 joined Noble Insurance Group, a privately owned group of specialist insurance providers. New Moon is a trading name of Noble Insurance Services Ltd.

Supporting the music community

Supporting the Brass Band community - Band Aid

We believe our Brass Band Insurance policy provides leading cover and competitive premiums but we wanted to do more for the Brss Band community.

Following discussions with Brass Bands regarding their Brass Band Insurance requirements, we tried to understand the problems and issues which you face today. Whilst costs are always important many of the bands we spoke to told us of the problems of getting new members, retaining players and the general running and admin of a band. Some bands raised concern over the average age of their band members and the desire to recruit younger and new players.

We wanted to help. As a specialist provider of music instrument insurance we want music to remain a core feature of local life. We therefore set about developing Band Aid.

To help you develop your Brass Band we provide direct financial support back to you with the specific aim of developing your Brass Band. In the past this has typically been in the form of a payment from us to you following the arranging of your insurance policy, from April 2024 your policy will receive a discount for the same amount meaning you don't have to pay the higher amount upfront and wait for us to send you the cheque.

All Brass Bands insuring with New Moon will automatically receive a 7.5% discount, if you are a member of Brass Bands England this is increased to 10%. This discount applies each year. 

We know that this won't solve all the challenges your band faces but we hope that the saving you are making will make things just a little bit easier. 

New Moon are proud to be a long term partner of Brass Band England.
