Our Corporate Membership packages offer you a great chance to access and build relationships with people who are passionate about music.
Each year our member groups:
- Promote and produce 23,000 events
- Present to audiences of 1.5M people in a wide variety of venue types
- Commission 400 new pieces of music
- Spend £18.5M on engaging 34,000 professional artists
- Spend £1.7M with music publishers
We can help raise your profile amongst our membership, give you discounts on direct promotion, and develop brand awareness through association with the UK's largest charity for amateur music.
But we would like our Corporate membership to be more than that – we want to help build lasting relationships and give our group members, and the voluntary music sector a helping hand. So we are flexible with our prices: if you think you can offer our group members something extra then we can tailor our packages and prices to suit your needs. So if you want to offer a discount, special offer or anything else you think might be of interest, get in touch and let’s see how we can work together.
