Friends of Bewdley Festival

Be ahead of the crowd – become a Festival Friend and help shape the future development of Bewdley Festival

Bewdley Festival, a registered charity, works year-round to support the main October Festival and we are in the early stages of further growth with a series of events and activities presented throughout the year.

Thanks to the support and encouragement of the members of the Society Bewdley Festival has developed and expanded over the years to become an eagerly awaited part of the local calendar.

Festival Friends pay a small annual fee which is renewable at the beginning of the year. The current fees are:

Individual: £20 per year,

Couples: £30 per year,

Students and young people aged 18 and under: £5 per year.

Our Festival Friends are crucial to the on-going development of our activities. Their support enables us to maintain the high quality of artists presented by Bewdley Festival over the years and helps us to grow both locally and nationally.

To join the Friends of Bewdley Festival please complete the application form on this page. On completion you will be asked to register a direct debit with our provider Go Cardless.
