Benefactors, Patrons and Friends

There are a growing number of individuals who regularly support the Presteigne Festival, and we’d love to widen our Family of philanthropists still further. We hope you will wish to add your encouragement – our individual giving schemes  continue to be a hugely important financial lifeline for the Festival.

As a result of the continued risk of COVID-19 infection, audiences at 2021 Festival are to be socially-distanced and will be required to wear masks whilst in performance venues. This will also mean a substantial reduction in audience capacity.
