Patrons

It is our aim to maintain and improve our standards in contributing to musical activities in Ellesmere Port and district. To achieve this, we have to rely on the finances provided by fundraising activities, grants and the generosity of private individuals and local firms. To put it into context, fees for soloists, orchestras and for the hire of our main venue are such that to recover them totally in the price of our tickets would be prohibitive. Despite capacity audiences, door receipts do not exceed 30% of the cost of an average concert, which is around £10,000.

We therefore annually ask Patrons, both Private and those in Industry and Commerce for a donation, in the hope that they would like to assist us in our endeavours.

We have a tiered system to enable benefits to be tailored to the individual or organisation needs.

Private Patrons are asked for a minimum annual subscription of £60, though many very generously give us much more.

Commercial Patron's subscriptions start at £60 and include different levels of advertising opportunities in our concert programs, at our concerts and on our website.

Private and Commercial Patrons receive complimentary tickets for each of the two annual concerts, and Patrons' names are published in the concert programmes.

Patrons receive their own special annual newsletter to keep them informed of future concert programs and other social activities that are arranged from time to time.

If you would like to be associated with Ellesmere Port Music Society as a Private or Commercial Patron, please contact the Patrons’ Secretary for further information: Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
