Our Festival Friends are lovers of opera, music and dance who want to see world-class opera and dance flourish at The Grange.
We may have a magnificent home for our Festival, but there is no wealthy backer in the wings here, and ticket sales only cover half the cost of each production. This means we need every penny donated each year by our wonderful supporters to keep our Festival going, as well as our education and community projects.
If you are a Friend, we warmly thank you. We hope you will stay with us (details are below). Without you, the Festival simply wouldn’t happen.
If you are not a supporter yet, please consider if you can help us, the details of our Festival Friends are below.
All our Friends enjoy priority booking and all donations are acknowledged in the Festival programme. We like to keep in touch with our Friends during the year and hope you may wish to join us at some of our out-of-season events that often focus on our forthcoming productions. All Friends levels expire at the end of July each year.
