Friends of Festival 2018

The Society does not make an admission charge for the annual Festival. Instead, we run the Friends scheme as a way of defraying some of the expenses.

This year, Friends will get a 24-page programme containing interesting Clare-related articles and poems, and a poetry pack. Those who also buy tickets for the concert (The Leicester Grammar School Folk Group, featuring fiddles, flutes, accordion and singers) will get priority booking and reserved seats. All this for just £10. Even if you are unable to come to the Festival, you might like to subscribe in order to receive the programme and poetry pack.

The support we receive via this scheme is greatly appreciated, and, if you can Gift Aid it, that is even better. Please consider subscribing, and we look forward to seeing you at the Festival.

You can access the application form here.
