Help us Support University Brass Bands

UniBrass exists to support university brass musicians at the time many are likely to stop playing. Our mission is to secure a robust future for the brass band movement. Since our inception, we have been instrumental in driving the establishment of 10 new university bands, fostering the creation of over 20 original compositions for brass band, and educating a new generation of talented conductors.

Unfortunately, none of this work is cheap. UniBrass faces costs of up to £20,000 a year, and it is only through the generosity of the public that we can ensure our work can continue. 


There are numerous ways you can contribute to the UniBrass Foundation and support our important work.

From every £1 entry, UniBrass receive a direct donation of at least 50p which will go directly towards our projects. You could support the future of brass banding and hit the jackpot. Why not give it a try?

A minimum of 50% of the total lottery proceeds are spent on supporting the work carried out by the UniBrass Foundation, 18.4% on prizes and 31.6% on the running cost and administration of the lottery. The likelihood of an entry winning a prize is 1 in 63. A complete set of rules can be found at, and information on how winners are selected can be found at
