Since its inception in 2008 the Winchester Chamber Music Festival has been supported by a group of well-wishers who have given freely of their expertise, time, money and practical support. The group has become larger with each succeeding Festival and its financial contribution has become increasingly significant. We hope that you would like to join the Friends and develop a closer relationship with the Festival – you will be most welcome and, in return for your commitment, you will enjoy some exclusive benefits as well as helping to secure the Festival’s continuing success.
