One donation. Twice the impact. 

We’re taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2023 for seven days of festive giving, where anyone can donate and support Cheltenham Music Festival and its year-round learning and participation opportunities. 

From 12pm on Tuesday 28 November (Giving Tuesday) until 12pm on Tuesday 5 December, every £1 you donate to us will be matched up to £15,000. 

Any donations received will help us continue to: 

•   bring a selection of musical delights to audiences in Cheltenham as part of Cheltenham Music Festival, from glorious chamber music to alternative and unique experiences 

•    reach over 2,000 school children across Gloucestershire through our Music for Schools and Musicate programmes, enabling pupils and teachers to enjoy and create music

•    inspire and provide opportunities to the next generation of talent

Michael Duffy, Head of Programming, Cheltenham Music Festival said: 'For us, being able to champion the next generation of talent and bring classical music to the heart of Cheltenham town is only made possible by the generosity of our donors and funders. Big Give is a great opportunity to showcase what the Festival is all about, while doubling any donations we receive. '
