Over the years the Friends Association has become a much treasured and important part of the festival.

As a loyal and enthusiastic group of music lovers it has helped to give the Festival stability and the confidence to go forward, to plan and develop for the future.

In return for their support we offer members a few benefits: newsletters, social events, special concerts and, of course, the opportunity to be part of this young and vibrant venture that brings the very best music to the community.

If you would like to join the Friends Association you are assured of a very warm welcome. The suggested membership donation is £25 per person per annum.

Chairman: Mr Peter Knapp
Secretary: Mrs Melanie Hurst
