Friends of the Festival

The Festival is especially indebted to the Friends. Their financial support enables us to operate year in and year out, allows for a quality of programming we couldn't otherwise afford, and makes it possible to commission new pieces from time to time.

The Friends of the Little Missenden Festival is a registered charity (no. 266028). Tax is recovered on all subscriptions paid through Gift Aid by UK taxpayers, which increases the  level of support at no cost to members.

Friends benefit from priority booking for tickets.

We would also like to thank all those other organisations and individuals who help and support the Festival in so many different ways. Click on the orange links below for more information:

Arts Council England - Hinrichsen Foundation - RVW Trust - Chiltern District Council - Little Missenden Parish Council - Little Missenden Parochial Church Council - Great Missenden Church of England Combined School PTA - Little Missenden School PTA (PSALMS) - Hyde Heath Infant School PTA - The Michael Cox Fund - Alan Hedges - Martin and Laurette Read - Hamptons International Estate Agents - Jaques Samuel (Fazioli Pianos) - Bluepepper Designs - Webs for Everyone - The Festival Volunteers


We enjoy the sponsorship of individuals and organisations alike. Some support a complete event, a new commission, or a particular aspect of the Festival - piano hire, for example. We are, however, always happy to discuss part-sponsorship of events, which recognises the importance of smaller contributions, often from individuals.

Sponsors receive complimentary tickets for their events, and are acknowledged by name in our brochure and programme notes, and on the website.

Helping with the Festival

The Festival couldn't take place without the practical assistance of our many helpers. We have no paid staff, the event is run entirely by volunteers. We have a marvellous team, but always welcome any further offers of help. Read about just some of the tasks here
