Please support our work

This page was updated on 9 January 2018

The London Handel Festival is an annual celebration of the work of George Frideric Handel. Each year we present a critically acclaimed season of concerts, recitals, talks and walks, and everyone is welcome. Since the very beginning the Festival has been supported by those passionate about Handel’s music. A major aim of the Festival is to encourage and promote young talent.  The annual Handel Singing Competition was inaugurated in 2002, and past finalists include singers who have gone to stellar international careers, such as Ruby Hughes, Iestyn Davies and Lucy Crowe.  We are a registered charity (no. 269184).

Our supporters make a huge contribution to the Festival each year, helping us maintain our high artistic standards whilst keeping ticket prices affordable. We do not receive any public subsidy and ticket sales alone do not cover all of our costs. Therefore we are reliant on our loyal group of supporters for our continued success each year, in particular to support our artistic ambitions to nurture young talent and explore Handel’s lesser known repertoire.  Please join us.

If you would like to join as a supporter or to renew your membership, please click on 'My Account' in the top right hand corner of this site and then 'Membership' to join/renew online, or email Latasha Lamb (boxoffice@londonhandelfestival.org.uk).    

If you are already a supporter, thank you so much for your valuable contribution to our work.

Making the most of your support
All membership subscriptions and any other gifts from Handel Supporters who pay tax in the UK are eligible for Gift Aid.  

As we are a registered charity (no. 269184), we can claim Gift Aid on your behalf.  We can send you a simple form to complete and return to us, and then we do everything else.  Gift Aid means that we can claim back from the government on your behalf 25p for every £1 donated, as you have already paid this tax.  If you are a higher rate tax payer, you can claim the donation as a charitable contribution to off-set against your tax when you do your tax return.

You are also welcome to contribute via CAF, family or personal charitable trusts or similar schemes, although gifts made in this way are not eligible for Gift Aid.

Thank you to all those who have supported the Festival.
