About Bury Court OperaBury Court Opera was founded in 2007 by John Coke and Suzanne Lemieux, since when our annual Spring productions have gained critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences who appreciate the consistently high quality, intimate atmosphere and excellent acoustics.
‘...the venue is something of a gem; and deserves to become a regular engagement on anyone’s opera calendar.”
(Roderic Dunnett, The Fairy Queen, 2014)
Friends of Bury Court Opera
We need your support because ticket sales cover barely half our costs and we receive no public subsidy. As a Friend you will be supporting our singers and orchestral players and helping Bury Court Opera to maintain the high standard of opera that we aim for.
There are three levels of membership, each with appropriate benefits: by becoming a Friend we hope you will feel that you are right at the heart of Bury court Opera, helping to contribute to its continuing success, and that your close association with the young people who perform, direct and design our annual productions will be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. In addition, if you are a Taxpayer, your donation will be increased by 25% through the Gift Aid scheme. (If you are a higher-rate taxpayer you can claim further allowances through your annual tax return).
All Friends: have a place on the advance mailing list, priority booking and acknowledgment in the Programme. In addition:
Major Sponsor (minimum donation £500 per annum – no upper limit!) will be invited to all Friends events and in addition will be invited to behind the scenes activities such as auditions and rehearsals.
CorporateAssociating your business with a first rate opera festival – the only one in North Hampshire in early spring - is a wonderful way to entertain partners, friends and colleagues.
All levels of sponsorship are available, from a page of Programme advertising to taking an entire ‘Night at the Opera’…
