For an annual donation of £25 for single membership or £40 for two (though we would of course be delighted to receive more!) you will receive the following:
  • One Friend's ticket for each concert at £2 off the standard price (Two per concert for joint members);
  • A complimentary programme, with Friends names printed (with permission);
  • Entry into an annual prize draw to win 2 free tickets to a future concert;

Advertising in our concert programmes

costs, and thus increases the amount we are able to give to charity.

Becoming a sponsor

Sponsoring a concert

Enables you to be sure that all the ticket revenue from
the concert will go to the charity you, the sponsor, have chosen. Concerts range in cost from £800 for an unaccompanied concert given entirely by the choir, through a range of costs which might include choir and organ and/or soloists, to a full choral and orchestral concert where the cost might be of the order of £6000 (covering the cost of venue, conductor and incidental expenses). The choir has worked with private and commercial sponsors and can give as much or as little profile to the sponsor as required. This would be discussed in advance of the concert, and all publicity materials designed would be submitted for the approval of the sponsor.

Other ways of sponsoring us
All donations, small or large, are always most gratefully received as they help to defray costs and enable us to put on concerts that we would not necessarily be able to fund ourselves. For example, a donation of £250-£350 would help us pay for a professional organist to accompany us; £150-£250 would pay for one orchestral player or professional singer. As above, we can give as much or as little profile to the sponsor as required.
