Please help Hay Music to flourish by becoming a Friend or Patron of the Hay Music Trust.

Since it was founded in 2011 Hay Music has presented  over 80 concerts in Richard Booth's Bookshop, the Castle, St Mary's Church and at Dorstone House. Our aim remains to offer the very best in classical and contemporary chamber music featuring both established and up-and-coming musicians whilst keeping ticket prices as low as possible. The Hay Music Trust was granted charitable status in 2016 (registered charity no. 1168901).

While costs are kept to a minimum thanks to the many volunteers and supporters who help make the concerts happen, box office alone cannot cover our expenses, especially as we are determined to keep the price of concert tickets as low as possible. We therefore invite you to support Hay Music's artistic programme by becoming a Friend or Patron.

We ask for a minimum donation from Friends of £25.00 (£40.00 for a couple) or £100.00 (£150 for a couple) from Patrons.

Friends and Patrons will receive the following benefits:

  • Prior notification by email at least one week before tickets go on sale

  • An invitation to an annual Hay Music party

  • All supporters will receive regular updates and newsletters

We will acknowledge the support of Hay Music Patrons by listing their names in our annual Chamber Music Festival programme.

We very much hope you will want to support Hay Music. You will find a link below to an application form which includes Gift Aid declaration which enables you to increase the value of your donation by 25%, and also a Standing Order form.

If you would like to become a Friend or Patron, please download and return the completed application form to

Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you as Friend or Patron.
