The Friends of the Festival are very important to us as they provide great support. As a Friend your financial contribution will be gratefully received by the charity and enable us to continue to plan future Festivals with confidence.

Become a Friend of the Festival and get free spectator entry to all Festival Classes and a Free Souvenir Programme.

This year we are asking for a minimum Donation of £30, which will cover the cost of your Spectator Ticket and a Souvenir Programme which will be posted to you.

For just £30 you will receive:

  • Free spectator entry to all Festival Classes
  • News about our other events
  • An introduction to lots of like-minded people

Please download, or use this Form to enrol and join this exclusive body: Friends of the Festival.

The Friends’ Secretary is: Rod Davis, CFPA, 58 King William Drive, Charlton Park, Cheltenham, Glos GL53 7RP


You don’t have to be a Friend to volunteer to help at the Festival or at any of our other fundraising events. We welcome applications from anyone wanting to offer their services.

Contact us today to let us know that you’re interested in becoming involved in the Festival.
