“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.

  • Sponsor a Seat

    Five years ago we bid farewell to the much loved oak pews in St Johns. This was to make way for our lovely new chairs, which offer more comfort and less creaking and allow us to use the venue more flexibly. However, they are quite an 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 but we still need your help to reach our target!
