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. Bath Festivals is a registered charity – the income we receive from membership helped us to programme 400+ events in 2016 and work with 6,000+ young people through our year-round creative learning programme.

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.

Signing up as a Benefactor is really easy. You can sign up by calling Box Office on 01225 463362  or online by clicking here
