We continue to be encouraged by the interest and support which the Festival idea is receiving – so many offers of help and expertise from many different areas.
Festivals depend on the support of their friends and so we have devised our own Friends scheme to channel that enthusiasm. We are delighted to publish full details of the Friends of the Southwell Music Festival and we hope many of our readers will wish to join.
Our aim has been to create a scheme which gives people a range of valuable and attractive benefits at appropriate prices.
There are three principal categories of membership – Gold, Silver and Bronze – each of which provides advance booking opportunities and a chance to meet the artists at an exclusive Friends Reception. In addition two of the categories provide a generous discount on ticket prices.
In keeping with our intention to encourage young audiences we have also created a Youth Membership category for people up to the age of 21 – providing access to rehearsals and free tickets on the door, subject to availability.
The names of all Friends will be published in the Festival programme book and all friends will receive an exclusive Friends newsletter twice a year. Full details of the scheme and an application form are available by clicking here.
