Tercentenary Appeal

The Three Choirs Festival is a national treasure. Champions of the British choral tradition, we present the greatest - and largest - works in classical music night after night during a festival which has been a spiritual presence at the heart of the nation's cultural life for 300 years.

But did you know that in order to maintain the festival’s artistic quality we must now generate £450,000 annually over and above ticket sales to ensure that each Three Choirs Festival will break even? This tercentenary year is the perfect time for you, our supporters and advocates, to play your part in underpinning this important asset for the next decade.

Click here to find out how you can get involved in this first initiative of the new Three Choirs Foundation, established to ensure the festival thrives in today's extremely difficult financial climate, and continues to do so for future generations.

Three Choirs Foundation

On Thursday 22nd January 2015, at the beginning of our 300th birthday year, the Three Choirs Festival launched a new charitable foundation to underpin the festival for future generations. During the event at the House of Lords, guests of Lord Faulkner heard from Edward Gardner OBE (in a speech delivered on his behalf by Adrian Partington), Dame Felicity Lott, Sarah Connolly CBE and Sir Michael Perry as they talked about the importance of the festival's work and our plans for the future.
