Success of the CBSO on the Road Series

Mitchells & Butlers have been sponsoring the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) ‘On the Road’ programme - specifically devised community concerts performed by members of the Orchestra – since June 2004. The sponsorship builds on the 25 year long relationship Mitchells & Butlers has with the CBSO.

Now in its third year the series continues to flourish, with demand for concerts remaining very high. The CBSO have held a number of concerts at many schools, community centres and local organisations across the Midlands. The reaction to performances has been excellent and helped raise awareness and money for the community organisations involved.

We have received some excellent and unsolicited feedback from local people who have written to the Company to thank us. Here are a few of the comments :

“We all thoroughly enjoyed the evenings entertainment and would like to congratulate you on your sponsorship of CBSO On The Road, without which events such as this would not be able to take place. Well Done to Mitchells and Butlers!!”

“I had the pleasure of attending a superb performance of the Little Big Time Band which had been organised to support a local children's charity. I note on the programme that you sponsor this band with generous funding enabling them to offer performances to promoters of various charities. For that gesture I would like to say well done, and I am certain it is well appreciated by all those concerned.”

“We attended a concert in our local Church last night, given by "The Little Big Time Band" of the CBSO. It was a wonderful experience, with a capacity audience who thoroughly enjoyed the professionalism, enthusiasm and skill of the performers, and showed their appreciation fully.”
