Patrons are an important part of our society and we are always delighted to welcome another patron to the ranks.

Members can become patrons by making a donation of £50 (£80 for a couple), which helps us to fund one concert each year. (Please note these donation rates remain unchanged for 2022/23.)


Each patron receives two guest tickets for the Patrons' Concert and an acknowledgement in the programme, unless they prefer to remain anonymous.

Please contact the Membership Secretary for more details.

Sometimes a member generously offers individually, or with a friend, to sponsor a particular aspect of the society's activities, such as hiring the piano, supporting our publicity or contributing to the performance of a particular composition - perhaps to commemorate a special event. Please see under 'Sponsorship' for further details.
