Friends & Patrons


Our Friends and Patrons know their support enables our work to flourish

As a Friend or Patron you will enjoy the closest association with the work of the Chorus. Your support will help us in so many ways: we can hire a larger orchestra, engage more top-class soloists, perform adventurous works that require more rehearsal, extend our work with young people and entice new audiences.

To thank you for your support, we will make sure you are kept in close touch with all our activities: you are the first to hear about our concerts, arebe invited to social events and rehearsals, where possible have the best seats reserved at our performances, and have your support acknowledged in all our publicity.

Friends make a minimum annual donation of £25

Patrons make a minimum annual donation of £100

As a Patron of BFC I am lost in admiration of the hard work, dedication and professionalism of the Chorus.  Over the last 20 years I have attended several rehearsals and many concerts and never fail to be blown away by the attention to detail, great discipline and fantastic sound.

BFC has been a very dominant feature in our lives for 50 years as singers. Now we are no longer singing we can't just drop it!  Joining the Friends has given us continued life enrichment - wonderful concerts, good seats, hospitality, and renewing friendships.  We are so glad we joined.
