“The musicianship is uniformly excellent, but it’s the spirit behind the music that makes Plush exceptional. With its idyllic setting and informal warmth, it’s a sharp contrast to metropolitan concert halls.”

ROGER GRAEF, TRUSTEE

Plush is an independent not-for-profit organisation kept alive through the commitment and passion of individual sponsors and our community of members. With your support we are able to meet production costs, explore new ideas and invite the most talented rising stars and established musicians to Plush each year. In return there are benefits to enjoy and the great satisfaction of joining a unique community of music lovers.

Every contribution makes a difference to the festival and brings us closer to what we can achieve. Give your support by joining our Sponsor a Seat campaign, or become a Member, Sponsor a Concert or Leave a Legacy.

  • Sponsor a Seat

    Five years ago we bid farewell to the much loved pews in St Johns. Our beautiful new chairs offer greater comfort and less creaking. However, they are a significant investment for the festival and we need your help to deliver our target of 200 seats.

    Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored already. We have come a long way, with 162 chairs…but we still need your help us reach our target!

    Sponsor a seat for £45 or sponsor two seats for £90
    Sponsor a seat for £200 or two seats for £400
    and receive the best available seats for any concert you attend in 2017.
