Supporting Us

To ensure the continuation of the Society and the quality of concerts we offer, the Society seeks support from individuals and companies.


For a minimum fee of £95 for a couple (£60 for a single) you can become a Friend of the Society. Two concerts each season, usually the Lakeland Sinfonia concerts, are supported by the Friends, and we are grateful that so many people support the Society in this way. We now have 100 Friends supporting the Society in this way.

Private Patrons

If you would like to support a particular concert with a donation of at least £500, we will provide you with complimentary tickets and a car park pass for that concert, and an invitation to the post-concert receptions. Concerts are sometimes sponsored by more than one Patron, so there is ample opportunity for new Patrons to support our concerts.

Some Patrons also support ‘their’ concert’s post-concert reception, to which their guests are also invited, but this is optional.

Corporate Sponsors

A concert can be an excellent marketing opportunity or a good way to reward your staff. For a minimum fee of £1,000 (£2,000 for the symphony concerts) you will receive a package of complimentary tickets for ‘your’ concert plus advertising opportunities, and you will be able to entertain your guests before the concert, during the interval and at the post-concert reception.

Please contact the Secretaries from the Contact Us page if you feel you can support the Society in any of these ways.
