We don’t make an admission charge for the 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 Saturday evening concert (the ever-popular band Pennyless) will get priority booking and reserved seats.
We are also holding an event on the Sunday morning: ‘A Beginner’s Guide to John Clare’, and you can book tickets for this on the Friends’ form if you wish.
All this for just £10. Even if you are not able 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.
