The Friends of Medieval Music in the Dales

Join Up Now!

The Friends of Medieval Music in the Dales is the organisation to join for anyone interested in supporting and attending Medieval Music in the Dales. Basically, you pay an annual subscription - which we hope you will maintain year on year, but you are of course free to cancel at any time. In return, Friends get a package of benefits - including admission to the festival each year. Being a Friend gives the best value for actually attending Medieval Music in the Dales. And you help immensely with the planning and administration of the Festival by ensuring a base - and crucial - level of funding each year.

We really encourage anyone interested to sign up! 

Here are the benefits for the coming year of membership:

  • a three-day weekend ticket to Medieval Music in the Dales (Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which also allows admission to the castle in the evenings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday). The box office price for a three-day pass is £75, so Friend membership represents a significant saving.

  • 25% off the regular box office price for evening concerts, workshops, cabaret and Study Day. The only exception is our new One-to-One sessions where we can't offer a discount, so sorry!

  • priority early bird booking for the Festival - meaning you get the chance to book early for the workshops and other events you are particularly interested in. The Box Office will open for Friends only on Sunday March 1st 2020, and for everyone else on March 21st so you have three weeks to get in before the crowd...

  • the chance to reserve places at daytime concerts, dance performances and talks - we have six daytime concerts, six talks and three dance performances this year! Only Friends can reserve these places.

  • freebies and discounted merchandise at the event and in the online shop.

And here are the 2020 rates:

Individual Friend Membership   -   £65 

Couple Friends Membership     -   £110

Don't forget - these prices INCLUDE a three-day Festival Pass to MMitD 2020 - or two Passes for a couple of course. 

Just fill in the form below, selecting either an Individual or a Couple Subscription and giving your contact details. We'll be in touch very soon with payment instructions and a welcome on board!


Please note - your membership is valid for the 12 months January to December of the year you sign up - or, if you sign up in the autumn, for the remainder of that year AND the12 months of the following January-December. 


You can sign up for the Friends of Medieval Music in the Dales from immediately after the festival each year (so around the second week of September) through to the opening of the Box Office for the next festival (so to midnight on 20th March each year). You can't join the Friends once the general Box Office is open from March 21st each year - so don't leave it too late!

Medieval Music in the Dales is organised and run by Trouvere Medieval Minstrels
