Friends of the Festival


From the beginning of the Festival, it became apparent that many of the members of our audience were enormously enthusiastic about the music offered and the ethos of the Festival. They wished to offer their support and this laid the foundation for the Friends Scheme, which continues today. There are about 200 members and many offer most valuable feedback to our Director and the Committee that the programmes and quality of performance are on the right track. 


The minimum annual subscription is £25 for an individual and £40 for two persons living at the same address.  


Friends of the Festival gain the following benefits:-

  • Advance copies of the Festival Programme and other Festival publicity material.

  • Priority booking for all events, three weeks earlier than the general public.

  • Invitation to two receptions during the Festival     .

  • Twice yearly newsletter.
