Patrons

The orchestra recognises the support given by many regular members of the audience and seeks to provide an opportunity for supporters to become more involved in its activities. We should like to invite regular supporters of the orchestra to become Patrons.

Sponsors have the satisfaction of making a direct contribution towards the finances and success of the Orchestra, and in return the Orchestra acknowledges its Sponsors in the Concert Programme.

There is no minimum period of patronage, although clearly for planning purposes we would prefer to have some notice if you wish to cancel your subscription.

There are various ways in which you may help as a Patron:

Individual Patrons’ Scheme
