How much do Oxford Function Bands cost?
Function Bands in Oxford cost from £128 to £10,195. The average price in 2021 was £1,741. Prices vary depending on experience, demand, size of act, travel costs and the specs of the equipment provided. Artists travelling into Oxford from further away will usually charge more than a local act due to travel time and fuel costs.
