For one night only during the Jazz Festival, Cowley Manor hosted a truly unique event. Internationally respected artists joined with Patrons and VIPs to present the ultimate night out, bringing incredible music to an amazing venue in the Cotswolds.
Artists including Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter and Cerys Matthews gave energetic performances to a buzzing crowd of supporters. This was as intimate as music gets, with the crowd sharing their passion for music with artists who were just feet away from them.
This fundraising event really summed up our Patrons scheme – intimate events with artists and performers which add another dimension to the Festival experience.
It’s something which goes on throughout the Jazz Festival in the Barclays Hospitality Lounge. Our Patrons gather there to mix with VIPs and artists, and to be part of a small crowd taking in the Henry Westons Jazz Sessions filmed in the Jazz Garden.
Patronage covers all four of our Festivals, so whether it is Jazz, Literature, Science or Music which you enjoy the most you can get more involved and enjoy new experiences – while giving vital support to our work.
As a registered charity, the contribution our Patrons make has a real impact on the Festivals. It is no exaggeration to say that without their support we simply could not bring such high quality events to Cheltenham, or run a year round education programme which inspires children and the community.
Patronage costs from £67 per month and is eligible for tax relief if you are a higher rate taxpayer, reducing the cost to you.
