The Music Festival relies on its membership. Members and Friends provide the continuity and financial support which are vital to its success. Non-members wishing to buy tickets will be made temporary members for the duration of the Festival, but are not entitled to Member benefits.

Members: the annual subscription is £10 per person. Members have one week’s priority over general booking. They may buy one annual garden pass each at the special price of £13 (normally £26) and they become ordinary members of the charity, the Great Comp Music Trust.

Friends: the annual subscription is £30 for one person and £40 for two people at the same address. Friends have the same benefits as Members but also one week’s priority over Members when booking and they are invited to the Friends’ Champagne Reception and Recital on Sunday 7 August. This is free of charge and provided at no cost to this Festival. All subscriptions are eligible for Gift Aid. Gift Aid forms need not be completed every year if the donor indicates that the arrangement is ongoing.

Please note that when garden passes are bought with membership online, the pass itself will be posted to the purchaser separately. Please also note that for administrative reasons the passes issued by Great Comp Garden will be pre-dated and valid for one year from that date.

Membership subscriptions and garden passes can be paid for online here.  2022 Music Festival memberships are valid until 30 April 2023.
