Festival Friends

Festival Friends

Festival Friends are the enthusiasts and devotees who each year between them have the potential to make extraordinary things happen. The more there are, the more extraordinary these things become.

Large donations from a few generous individuals have helped the festival since its beginning. The Friends Scheme has been running successfully for the many years. For a relatively affordable subscription you too can become a Festival Friend. As well as the benefits that the scheme offers you can enjoy a sense of involvement and have the satisfaction of knowing that you are one of the people bringing joy to the lives of others by helping to fund this exciting festival.

The Friends subscriptions are £100 for single membership and £150 for couples. For all the benefits of joining the Friend’s of Holt Festival  -see below.

We also have a Subscribers Scheme. For payment of only £25 you will receive an email to take advantage of the one week’s priority booking period before it opens to the general public.
