And other anonymous benefactors.
HBCMF relies on the generosity and goodwill of its donors for its existence; our Friends are an integral part of the Festival. All our Friends are listed in our concert programmes and receive priority booking for our concerts.
Supporting us does several things:
You help keep tickets at an affordable level so everybody can experience this amazing music.
You allow us to attract the best musicians to give fantastic concerts.
You ensure that we can pay our musicians fairly.
To become a Friend of HBCMF, donate at least £50. If you feel able to give more, consider our other packages below, which come with further perks and benefits. We'd be hugely grateful for any support, and as we are a Charity any donations from UK taxpayers attract Gift Aid, which means that the government gives us an extra 25% on top of your donation.
To become a Gold Friend of HBCMF, donate £100. As well as being listed in the concert programmes, you will receive a free ticket to one of our concerts.
To become a Platinum Friend of HBCMF, donate £200. As well as being listed in the concert programmes, you will receive a free pair of tickets to one of our concerts, and you will be invited to meet the musicians following the concerts.
To become a Diamond Friend of HBCMF, donate £300. As well as the perks associated with Gold Friendship, you will receive a free pair of tickets to one of our concerts, exclusive invitations to observe rehearsals, and meet the musicians before and after the concerts.
Thank you so much for your help and support.
