The Friends of Aldeburgh Music are integral to our ability to thrive. Friends have their own designated advance booking period.

An active social network, Friends also enjoy a varied calendar of events and trips throughout the year and receive a newsletter, magazine and optional emails, so they always know what’s happening next. Gift Memberships can be arranged.

Find out some of the many advantages and opportunities that being a Friend of Aldeburgh Music has from long-time Friend, John Carrington.

£25 minimum annually
£100+ gives you the option to be credited in our Programme Books

If you join the Advance Booking List or become a Friend, you can also choose to be an Associate of the Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme by making an additional donation to support emerging professional musicians. Every year, Associates are invited to attend a reception.
