No tickets are necessary and the concert is open to the public.
Each week The Little London Winds holds a Conductors Auction during the concert. The winning audience member gets the chance to conduct The Little London Winds performing a march. Photos are taken and the audience member is also awarded a keepsake conductor’s baton. All donations made during the concert and during the Conductors Auction go to The Little London Winds, as it is a non-profit organization [501(c)].
