Supporting the Choir and ‘Great Choral Music’ 

The Worcester Festival Choral Society is an independent, self-funding charitable organisation (Reg No: 506826).  We are a friendly group of amateur singers, enthusiastic about classical choral music and bringing it to our wonderful City. All Choir and Committee members’ time is given freely. Our main sources of revenue are derived from ticket sales, members’ subscriptions and partnerships with individuals. Trusts and businesses who share our vision also participate in a range of ways, which we gratefully acknowledge. We would be extremely grateful for your support at any level and look forward to hearing from you!

  • Join the Chorus 
  • If you are a keen amateur singer and can read music, why not Join us for a few rehearsals to see if you would enjoy singing with us (membership places subject to availability). Alternatively you could take part in one of our ‘Come and Sing’ events.
  • Buy tickets

    One of the most important things you can do to support us is to buy tickets for our concerts, and encourage as many of your friends as possible to come along too. Tickets for the current season are priced £10-£25 and are bookable online HERE; from the ‘Worcester Live’ Box Office at Huntingdon Hall Worcester, telephone 01905 611427; or purchased on the Cathedral door on the evening of the concert (subject to availability). Concessions on some seats are available to people aged 60 or over, to those registered disabled and to full-time students. Children aged 9-15 years accompanying a paying adult are admitted free (limited to one children’s ticket per paying adult). Parties of 10 or more booking together will receive a 10% reduction.
     
  • Become a Patron

    If you are not an active singer but you enjoy classical or choral music and supporting the arts, you might like to consider becoming a Patron.
     

  • Advertising & sponsorships

    Perhaps you know someone who runs a business and who would be interested in advertising in our programme, or exploring a special sponsorship partnership. Our Marketing & Publicity Officer would be delighted to hear from you. Contact us.
     

  • Support WFCS when you participate in the Worcester Community Lottery

    Choose Worcester Festival Choral Society as your preferred charity when participating in the Worcester Community Lottery and we'll receive a fantastic 50p from every ticket you buy, to help us continue to bring 'the choral greats' to Worcester each year! Plus 10p from every ticket will go to other great local causes. Tickets cost only £1 each and you could WIN up to £25,000. Draws take place every Saturday at 8pm, from 27th April 2019. Buy your tickets at our special WFCS Worcester Lottery Page HERE 
     
  • Shop online using our WFCS Amazon link below, and we receive a 10% donation of your sale – at no cost to you! 

    Now there is a fantastic way to contribute to WFCS funds when doing your normal online shopping. Anyone purchasing products, gifts or music through Amazon can support Worcester Festival Choral Society by using our special Amazon link for access – and the Society will receive a donation worth 10% of your purchase value. (The link takes you to what looks like the normal Amazon home page, but in fact the system knows you have used our WFCS link and donates to us accordingly when you pay). It won’t cost you anything, but provides an invaluable, small additional income for the Society each year. Thanks for supporting WFCS while you shop!

  • Attend our social events

    We have several social events during the year including such things as a quiz night during the spring term, occasional summer garden parties, and Christmas and end of term gatherings with food and drink at a local pub. Sue White, our Social Secretary, would be delighted to tell you of our next event, and we would welcome you to join us for a drink, a bite to eat and an opportunity to enjoy an informal chat together, so why not contact her?
