Become a Benefactor

Become a Benefactor

Becoming a benefactor is for people who enjoy music, literature and the arts and wish to help them to thrive in Bath. As a charity we work throughout the year to deliver the festivals, developing partnerships with organisations including Mentoring Plus, the egg, Bath Spa University, The Holburne Museum, House of Imagination and Youth Connect South West as well as school and venues – building on our decade of experience in bringing together young people and creative opportunities. We also programme and curate free events to be enjoyed by the Bath and wider community, including Party in the City and Family Arts Day.

The income we receive from Benefactors, Patrons and Members helps us to support The Bath Festival, The Bath Children’s Literature Festival, Reading is Magic Festival and our year-round Creative Learning Programme, which provides unique creative opportunities and life-enhancing experiences for children and young people. Find out more about our Creative Learning programme here

Being a Benefactor is a wonderful way of supporting the arts while also gaining the benefit of priority booking, discounts (subject to membership level) and the opportunity to be invited to exclusive festival events such as the Opening Night Party. Membership covers both The Bath Festival in May and Bath Children’s Literature Festival in autumn.
