Stour Valley Arts & Music

How do we fund our concerts?

The substantial cost of putting on our concerts and other events is funded chiefly through the income from ticket sales.

However, we could not exist without the support of generous sponsors, both corporate and personal.

Grants from public bodies are not sought because of the enormous amount of time and red tape involved. So we rely on our members to support us with additional donations and by coming to the events.

Amongst our longest-standing supporters is the Countess of Munster Musical Trust which supports a concert each year by young musicians.

How you can support us
