Friends

Festival Friends are the enthusiasts and devotees who each year between them have the potential to make extraordinary things happen. The more there are, the more extraordinary these things become.

Large donations from a few generous individuals have helped the festival since its beginning. The Friends Scheme has been running successfully for the many years. For a relatively affordable subscription you too can become a Festival Friend. As well as the benefits that the scheme offers, you can enjoy a sense of involvement and have the satisfaction of knowing that you are one of the people bringing joy to the lives of others by helping to fund this exciting event.

The Friends subscriptions are £100 for single membership and £150 for couples. Benefits include priority booking with advanced copy of the brochure, free and discounted tickets and invitations to various events. For details of the Friends membership and an application form please click here.

We also have a Subscribers Scheme. For payment of only £25 each subscriber will receive a festival brochure through the post and be entitled to take advantage of a one week priority booking period immediately before booking opens to the general public. The Subscriber subscription qualifies for gift aid which is an advantage to the festival. For an application form please click here.
