Donate to support the Festival
Music festivals are joyous events – but expensive. Typically, eight days of lunchtime and evening music costs around £50,000, which cannot be met by ticket sales alone.
Donations help us to meet our costs, which include performer fees and accommodation expenses, venue and piano hire, cameras and screens, advertising, I.T. and printing costs. The Festival is largely self-funding and run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers so costs are kept to a minimum. We welcome any donation, however small!
Or simply donate by text
Text FESTIVAL to 70470 and enter the number in £s that you want to donate.
(UK networks only. Texts cost your donation amount plus one standard rate message.)
Remember BMF in your Will
Your legacy or gift needs to be specified in your Will, but this can be simply as a Codicil to an existing Will. Take advice from a solicitor, professional Will writer, or a high street bank, as they can advise you on wording and any tax benefits associated with your gift.
There are 3 main ways to leave a gift in your Will:
Residuary legacy – a share of your estate, e.g. one quarter of your residuary estate, either before or after other bequests have been met
Pecuniary legacy – a specific sum, e.g. £100
Gift of a specific object or item – e.g. an instrument or a holding of shares
Your gift will make a big difference.
