Support Us

We have now embarked on our long-awaited Centenary Year, and WE NEED YOU!

We have planned an incredibly exciting programme of events for this once in a lifetime season, but to make sure that our acclaimed and thriving local institution can continue, in its second century, to make a significant contribution to the community, we are keen to attract support from local businesses.


Sponsorship is an excellent and highly visible way to support local culture and the arts, and to bring a business or name to the attention of our discerning audiences.

If you know of any business which you think would be interested in supporting us, please contact our publicity officer on who will be delighted to discuss the possibilities.


We are grateful for the support of the charitable trusts which have both supported our concerts to date and enabled us to plan ahead. However, more is needed and we would be pleased to hear from you if you are connected to a grant giving trust or know someone who might be able to help us.

Individual donations

We are also grateful to the many individuals who support us each year. Please consider making a donation by clicking the button below, or contact if you would like to make a donation or require any information.

Thank you to our current supporters

We are most grateful to The Humphrey Richardson Trust, The Leche Trust, The Radcliffe Trust and The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation for their support in our Centenary year, and also to these grant-giving bodies who have supported us in recent years: The Steel Charitable Trust, The Music Reprieval Trust and The Herbert Howells Trust.
