Friends of the Festival

If you share our aims and would like to contribute to our achievements, why don't you join us by becoming a Friend of the Festival? Together we can make sure that the Festival consolidates and grows.

What Friends can do for the Festival

  • Your membership fee will help us to meet our objectives
  • Organising fund raising events would bring in extra money
  • We are always looking for commercial as well as charitable sponsors, who might give us long term backing, and your help in this matter would be most welcome.
  • Your skills might be very useful in the running of the Festival
  • You can contribute to building up audiences by bringing your friends to your Festival!

The benefits which you would receive as a Friend
  • Reserved seats at all the Festival concerts
  • A preview concert given by the English String Quartet, in which the music for the forthcoming festival will be discussed and played. This will be followed by a reception with refreshments, giving the opportunity to get to know both the performers and the fellow supporters
  • The opportunity to attend a concert-workshop at a primary school and to see music education in action
  • A regular newsletter keeping you in touch with the Festival, its musicians and associated events
  • The satisfaction of helping to bring great music to more people and to build the audiences of the future
