Battle of the Bands - East Cheshire Hospice

Battle of the Bands

Raise funds and melt faces!

Does a battle of the bands type event sound like music to your ears? Forget that same old, same old talent show. A battle of the bands fundraiser is great way to raise money for charity, give your fundraising cause a cool reputation and have a really good time. The competition element adds even more excitement and passion to the mix!

Raise money by charging an entry fee, selling merchandise and food. You could also get some collection tins from the Hospice and hold a raffle! Another option is to also ask bands to pay a nominal registration fee to perform, but this may depend on what kind of acts you want to get involved and how well you might know them. Don’t forget to ask the performers to say a little bit about the charity they are supporting before they start their set!

How do I get started?

There’s some great ideas and advice here to plan a successful battle of the bands event, but this is something that you can really make your own! It could be a royal rock rampage, or maybe a veritable variety show! If you know some musicians and people in bands at your school, that’s a great place to start by getting them on board. Then you just need a venue, some equipment and lots of promotion!


Organise an amazing evening and raise vital funds for East Cheshire Hospice.


It costs £7,500 to keep the Hospice running for 1 day, so every penny that you can raise is important. You may never know exactly how your support will help but you can be assured that the impact your support will have on local families who can benefit from the Hospice services at one of the most difficult and emotional times will be huge and ever so appreciated.
