Festival Friends

The last few years have been extremely challenging for the whole arts and culture sector, with the lingering impacts of Covid, the cost of living crisis, and huge pressure on previously reliable sources of funding.

As we navigate these tricky times, we have never needed the support of our generous Festival Friends more, and they are very much a part of our Festival ‘family’.

Help keep BREMF thriving

As we navigate the new post-Covid normal, we are delighted that our family of Festival Friends is growing as more people form a connection with the Festival and discover our unique events. It was extremely heartening to re-connect with audiences during 2024, and we are looking forward to 2025 with enthusiasm.

Please consider becoming a Festival Friend, and joining our growing community to keep BREMF thriving. We hugely value the support of our Friends and are delighted to offer exclusive benefits and opportunities for our supporters including priority ticket booking, seat reservations (at Silver Friend level and above), and opportunities to connect with our Artistic Director and performers.
