About the Festival Friends

A word from the Artistic Director, Anthony Hewitt:

As we prepare for each new Season, the support of our Festival Friends is valued and needed more than ever. I hope that our June Festival will offer even more to engage our audience through a diverse programme of classical, jazz, folk, and opera, whilst our Winter Series and education work will continue to bring communities together.

Ticket sales account for 1/3 of the cost of our work, therefore we rely on the generous donations from our Festival Friends, grant-making organisations, and Arts Council England.

Your donation will contribute to all areas of the Ulverston International Music Festival, from bringing wonderful performers and artists to South Lakeland to new resources for our education programmes.

Our full range of memberships are available annually, offering a range of benefits and further opportunities to become involved with the Festival.

I would be delighted if you would consider joining us as a Festival Friend.
