Three Choirs Tercentenary Appeal

The Three Choirs Foundation’s first major initiative is the Tercentenary Appeal, with a target of £1,000,000.

In the past, the custodians of this festival were the ‘stewards’ who gathered in annual syndicates to underwrite the festival personally. Today, you are all invited to follow their historic and visionary lead by contributing at whatever level you are able by joining one of our new annual giving ‘circles’ and donating annually over five years to empower the festival to continue its work.

Annual donation for five years

Byrd Circle £100
Tallis Circle £250
Finzi Circle £500
Purcell Circle £1,000
Parry Circle £2,500
Vaughan Williams Circle £5,000
Elgar Circle £10,000

(If you commit yourself to five annual payments, you will be invoiced each year on the anniversary of your first donation)

Benefits for all those who donate £500 or more

  • Your name included in the annual souvenir programme and on the Foundation page of the website
