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 £12 per person. Members have one week’s priority booking; they may buy one garden season ticket each at the special price of £12.00 (normally £24.00) 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 4 August. This is free of charge and provided at no cost to this Festival.

Please note that vouchers supplied online for garden annual season tickets must be exchanged for garden passes on first entry to the garden and will be valid for one year from that date. Vouchers must be exchanged before 31 October 2019.

Membership subscriptions can be paid online here. 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. 2019 Music Festival memberships are valid until 31 March 2020.
