Our Principal Benefactors are The Emmanuel Kaye Foundation and the Beryl Sleigh Trust, both of which have supported the Festival generously for many years. We rely on the generous support of our Friends and Benefactors to enable us to:

  • engage world-class musicians to perform in our Grade 1 listed Church and Marquee while keeping ticket prices affordable
  • make donations for the upkeep of St Mary’s Church and other charitable causes
  • maintain an active outreach programme to encourage the appreciation of music in the local schools and in the community
