Patronage

Throughout history, the Three Choirs Festival has relied on generous donations from its supporters to keep the festival tradition alive across the three counties. Only 50% of our income comes from ticket sales, meaning that as a charity we rely on patrons and other supporters for the rest of our funding.

In becoming a patron, you are following in the footsteps of many other music-lovers and will enjoy an array of benefits not available to regular members. The range of benefits are accorded to each level of Patronage: from the greatest priority in ticket booking, reserved seats at unreserved events and an annual Patron’s reception, through to exclusive invitations to behind-the-scenes experiences and opportunities to meet with our artists and Artistic Directors. Patron subscriptions begin at £500 a year, rising to gifts of £5000 for Diamond Patrons.

"The Three Choirs Festival has supported me for decades, all through my career, offering me myriad recital opportunities through which I could programme a wide range of song, especially British music (not least some of my own!) and an equally varied platform for grand-scale oratorio works, including the major Elgar masterpieces, half-forgotten choral gems, brand new contemporary works and even my Wagnerian debut in the first act of Parsifal!

It gives me great pleasure to return the favour, supporting Three Choirs through my role as honorary patron, promoting the name and the values of this prestigious and venerable festival. Long before the concept of ‘Levelling Up’ was trumpeted in the capital, the Three Choirs Festival has championed world-class music-making in the heart of the country and I am proud to be associated with it."
