If you are looking to reach a market which appreciates excellence in all things the Benslow Music
half yearly brochure is the perfect place to advertise.
Benslow Music, located in Hitchin, is the trading name of an independent charity, Benslow Music Trust, whose origins go back
some 80 years. Each year we give up to 180 short music courses, most of them residential. These are taught by some of the most
celebrated names in the music industry and offer training at all standards in everything from folk and jazz to classical, gospel and
non-Western musics. They attract a wide range of clients who come from all over the country, increasingly from Europe, and from
as far away as Australia and the Middle East. The majority are of the post-40 generation and are professionals with large disposable
incomes. Many are retired, with time on their hands.
Each issue of our brochure enjoys a print run of 12000, is widely distributed throughout the UK and overseas, and is also available
for downloading from our popular website.
Despite the current economic climate our business is enjoying a period of excellent growth and is a name widely recognised within
the music and education industries. We would very much like your business to share the benefts of our increasing popularity by
advertising in our next brochure. This year for the frst Benslow Music is offering the opportunity to advertise within its nationally
and internationally circulated brochure to business, local and otherwise beyond our usual musical retail partners
I have attached a rate card for your information; we would remind you that each of our brochures has a currency of six months and
