Sponsors and Friends

The purpose of the St. Barrahane’s Church Music Festival is:
• promoting high quality classical music, old and new
• giving enjoyment to locals and tourist
• providing a stage for artists, established as well as aspiring ones, especially from the Cork School of Music.

Our summer Festival comprises five to six concerts during July and August at St. Barrahane’s Church, Castletownshend but in 2018, we made a big change by organising more concerts throughout the year and using additional venues such as Abbeystrewry Church, Skibbereen, Christ Church, Glandore, Myross Church of Ireland, Union Hall, and Myross Wood House, Leap

The costs of staging concerts continue to increase. We have a constant battle to keep down our admission price while at the same time maintaining the high quality of performers and concerts. If we are to remain viable, your support would be invaluable and very much appreciated.

To help with festival expenses, we introduced two schemes, a SPONSORSHIP Scheme and a FRIENDS Scheme. We also gratefully accept once off donations.

FRIENDS €100

€100 entitles a Friend to reserve two seats (24 hour notification required and tickets also have to be purchased).

Friend's names will be listed on our concert programmes and also on our website, unless otherwise instructed. Subscription is valid for one calendar year.

DOUBLE FRIENDS €150

All the benefits of the FRIENDS scheme for 2 people.

€150 per couple entitles Friends to reserve four seats (24 hour notification required and tickets also have to be purchased).

Both Friend's names will be listed on our concert programmes and also on our website, unless otherwise instructed. Subscription is valid for one calendar year.

SPONSORSHIP €250

For the Sponsorship Scheme, we are seeking a donation of €250 in support from local enterprises.

This entitles a sponsor to:
•The Company logo/name displayed prominently at the concert venue.
•The Company logo/name on all our publications and brief message if available.
•A full page on our website and/or links to yours.
•Verbal acknowledgement before commencement of all the concert.
•Invitation to a Sponsors/Friends Reception at the end of the Season.
•Reserved seats (but not free) if attending any concert – 24 hour notification required.
