Become a Friend or Patron

For over 70 years the King’s Lynn Festival has been attracting top names from the worlds of music, arts and entertainment. It also prides itself in introducing talented younger artists to the town, many of whom are fast establishing a reputation in the classical music world.

If you would like to help us continue this tradition of excellence please consider becoming a Festival Friend or a Private Patron.

Festival Friends make an annual donation of £30 (individual) or £50 (couple) and in return for their support they receive:

  • Advance details of Festival events.
  • A priority booking period before tickets are released for general sale (very occasionally we have to limit the number of tickets available to Friends during the priority period but you will always be able to apply for at least two tickets for each event).
  • Membership card to access discounts at a number of local restaurants and retailers during the Festival.
  • Invitation to join us at exclusive events throughout the year including special walks and outings.

Private Patrons make an annual donation of £80 (individual) or £100 (couple) and receive the same benefits as Friends, PLUS exclusive access to tickets before they are available to Festival Friends or the general public pre-sale and will be credited as collective sponsors of an event for which they will also be entitled to buy discounted tickets.

Gift aid

If you pay income tax you can significantly increase the value of your donation at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid allows us to claim back 25p for every £1 you give to us, boosting the value of your donation by a quarter. All we need from you is permission to reclaim the tax you have paid to HMRC and we’ll do the rest. Higher rate taxpayers can claim further relief via their own tax return.
