Our Friends love being part of a real Essex success story. This is your chance to join them and experience the thrill of supporting an inspiring organisation. Please scroll down for descriptions of the various levels.
Our Friends receive regular newsletters and enjoy priority booking.
The equivalent of just £6 per month enables such projects as involving three young people from a deprived area in our education project, boosting their self-confidence, social skills and academic achievement. Also enjoy priority booking for concerts, your name in the programme and regular newsletters.
The whole experience was just brilliant. Stunning, world-class artists who gave their all in a magical location. What is more the audience loved it, I mean really loved it.
Enjoy making a real difference – from £250
Those who support us with £250 love the fact that their support can enable possibly life-changing experiences for a whole class of children; paying for a musician to give a tailored, interactive recital in a local secondary school – an unforgettable experience for young students that can spark a passion for music that lasts a lifetime.
Thanks so much for the recital the other day. It was amazing! Head of Music at Thomas Lord Audley School
In return, you will receive a free copy of our beautiful festival programme and an invitation to special events where you can meet performers during the festival.
The wonderful people who support us with substantial amounts over £500 are proud to be making a real contribution to our world-class festival, putting Essex on the international cultural map.
I would like to thank and congratulate you and all the team for the most wonderful Festival. I am so proud to have been involved, and will sponsor again next year.
A donation of £750 can enable a whole class of young people to compose and perform with an inspiring animateur, boosting their self-confidence and social skills as well as musical talent and academic achievement.
The music workshop was truly inspirational. Without exception the children’s comments demonstrated their enjoyment, with the only complaint being that they would have loved to have a longer session! Head teacher
A donation of £1,000 – £5,000 can sponsor an entire concert. This is the most thrilling way to support the festival, and our wonderful sponsors absolutely love experiencing a concert that they have made possible. Please email us for a list of concerts.
You may gather that this was, for me and my guests, a weekend as near to heaven as it’s possible to get. I sincerely hope that rumours of another weekend mini-festival next year are true. If so, I can hardly wait.
Our hugely appreciated Benefactors are invited to attend education events to see their support in action. We will also look after you at the festival, reserving seats for you and your guests and supplying a free copy of our beautiful souvenir programme, plus invitations to special events, priority booking for Festival concerts, and a listing in the programme.
Please help us spread the word. If you can introduce three new people who go on to buy tickets we will be delighted to send you and them free copies of the beautiful 80-page programme.
This year has been the most magnificent achievement for Roman River Music. The eclectic mix of music on offer this year was amazing and gave much pleasure to so many people. I only wished that I could have attended every concert. I look forward with eager anticipation to next year.
