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.
