The rich diversity of Shropshire Music Trust's work would simply not be possible without the generous help of individuals such as our supporters – vital in helping us achieve our charitable mission to share great music with as many people as possible.
As you'll already know, with our funding from local authorities and other bodies drastically cut and still reducing, we need your help more than ever to help maintain the high quality of concerts and to engage thousands of people each year both in the main Season and in Outreach projects for the young, elderly and disadvantaged.
You may not realise that our annual box office income cannot cover the full cost and on its own accounts for only about 50% of the money needed each year to sustain our programme of work. We therefore require additional funds to deliver this and keep great music in Shropshire flowing.
