Becoming a Festival Friend is a fantastic way to keep in touch with Swaledale Festival and to provide the long-term support that is so vital to the Festival's future. Our Friends play an important role in helping to fund, build and sustain all that we do.  

Benefits include:

  • A priority booking period, enabling Friends to buy tickets before the box office opens to the public
  • An invitation to an exclusive Friends' Reception during the Festival
  • Periodic newsletters throughout the year
  • The opportunity to be part of the Festival community with the knowledge that your support is helping it to thrive 

Becoming a Friend costs £30 (individual) or £50 (joint - two people at the same address) per annum.  

Single membership entitles you to buy two tickets to each event during the Friends' priority booking period and joint membership entitles you to buy four tickets per event.

" We feel privileged to have been Friends of the Festival for many years. With its abundance of events that appeal to a wide audience, its dynamic Artistic Director and the amazing and accomplished performers he presents, the Festival goes from strength to strength".
