The Festival’s Friends and Benefactors are a group of highly valued people whose commitment to the Festival and love of music are a major force behind its continued success. Please contact [email protected] to find out more

Friends of the Festival pay an annual subscription of £25. In recognition of their support they receive priority booking for concerts as well as musicians’ news and advance information about forthcoming events.

Benefactors are the generous donors whose support makes an important contribution in enabling the musicians to provide a range of programmes stretching from favourites of the repertoire to music by lesser known composers and the commissioning of new work. Benefactors make an annual contribution of a minimum of £200 and receive an additional priority booking period.


To enable the festival to thrive and extend the range of its work including the development of young musicians embarking on their professional career, we welcome the support of local organisations and businesses.

Opportunities include advertising signage at Dorset roadsides including the sponsorship logo as well as sponsorship  of specific concerts or musical initiatives.

Please contact [email protected] to find out more or make suggestions on how you might like to become involved.
