I am looking for advice and a bit of help. Betteshanger Brass Band have recently been awarded a couple of high profile corporate style engagements which will pay particularly well. A lot of effort has gone into getting these. However a recent corporate engagement was cancelled with the hirer going for a cheaper option after the initial agreement. Efforts to recover some compensation have resulted in a token payment and no more. It is fair to say that, like a lot of bands, most engagements are taken on trust by both sides. However, having now learnt the lesson we are looking to formailise the agreements with written contracts. My hope is that some on this forum may be able to supply me copies of contracts they use which will assist me in drawing up something similar to protect us in the future. I can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for any help. Ian.
