Sponsorship

To commemorate the ending of the Great War, the Burford Singers and the English Arts Chorale Association (both being registered charities) are combining to perform the War Requiem in the majestic surroundings of Winchester Cathedral on 9th June 2018 and again on 23rd June 2018 in the unique setting of Tewkesbury Abbey. The large choral and orchestral resources, supported by the Choristers of Bristol Cathedral and the English Arts Chamber Orchestra, will be led by conductors Brian Kay and Leslie Olive with solo performances by leading professionals including internationally renowned tenor, James Gilchrist.

 

We are proud to have the backing of the Royal British Legion, which has a long history of giving support and assistance to servicemen, servicewomen and their families. A retiring collection for the Royal British Legion will be taken at each event.

 

Inevitably the combined cost of these events will be substantial (high five figures) and they will attract a great deal of local and national attention as we work to create the standout commemorative events in a year of national commemoration. We are already fully engaged in making sure that each event attracts the widest possible media coverage, civic recognition and public attention. In order to fund these events we are offering a range of sponsorship and ‘giving’ opportunities, summarised below, with attractive benefits and the prospect of being recognised as supporters of the arts.
