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.
Please help us if you can by joining or renewing your support:Be a Friend - from £15 single per year, £30 joint/family* or just £3 per monthBe a Patron - from £75, or £7 per monthBe an Associate - from £200, or £17 per monthBe a Benefactor - from £400, or £34 per monthBe a Philanthropist - for donations of £1000 or above(*up to 2 adults plus children aged 18 & under)
