Memberships 2023/24

The London Handel Festival is about enriching lives through Handel’s incredible musical legacy. We do this through our critically acclaimed 4-week Festival each Spring featuring world-class artists, innovative productions from our Handel Opera Studio, dynamic performances from emerging ensembles and talented young musicians.  The London Handel Festival is more than an annual event and continues with an Autumn series of concerts and a year round Creative Learning Programme.

Please consider supporting us to become the most engaging, innovative and accessible Handel Festival where the greatest performances of Handel can be enjoyed by all.  We rely on the support of donors, grants and gifts to achieve our ambitions as we receive no regular public subsidy.

Annual membership options start from as little as £40 per year with higher levels for supporters who wish to donate more and become more involved in our work.

Members benefit from priority booking, invitations to members-only events such as our Festival Launch, and members at higher tiers have a range of opportunities to meet musicians, tour backstage, attend rehearsals and regularly meet the Festival Director.

If you would like to join as a supporter or to renew your membership, please click on ‘Become a Member’ below, or email Head of Development, Andrea Lee: andrea.lee@londonhandelfestival.org.uk
