The Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts has taken place in Cheltenham for over 90 years. However, our future is never a particularly secure one.

The entry fees we charge provides just over 40% of the funds we need for each Festival. So, we therefore need to raise funds by many other means.

Your donation could help us to:

  • Reach more schools to invite their children to the Festival
  • Advertise the Festival to attract more spectators
  • Produce a comprehensive programme of classes
  • Ensure the Festival continues to be held at the Town Hall

Ways to donate

2021 Festival Support: Now that we have, with huge regret, been forced by the Coronavirus to cancel the 2020 Festival, a donate site has been opened by Anna Treasure.  Anna served as a trustee for many years and realised that the cancellation would cause us huge losses.  Click here for the link.  Our grateful thanks go to all those wonderful supporters who have sent donations to help us minimise the Festival’s cancellation costs, including: Rachel Atkinson, Vicki Beauregard, Ginny HB, Ailsa Howarth, Patricia Mace, Anthony McNaught, Pippa Phillips, John Rawson, Margaret Richards,  Kate Wilkey.
