The Friends of
Medieval Music in the Dales
Being a Friend is the best way of supporting Medieval Music in the Dales on an ongoing basis. Please rest assured that the regular subscriptions of our Friends are really really helpful in ensuring the continued success of our Festival.
There are three levels of membership:
Individual Friend - for any individual who intends to attend MMitD regularly
Friends Couple - for any two people who intend to attend MMitD together
Friend From Afar - for anyone who wants to support MMitD but can't make it to the live festival in Yorkshire
More information below.
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 - and this annual subs is essential in maintaining the Festival on an even financial keel. Be assured, your subs help immensely with the planning and administration of the Festival by ensuring a regular base - and crucial - level of funding each year. In return, Friends get a package of benefits.
Does this sound like you? if so, please sign up!
Here are the benefits for the coming year (2022):
INDIVIDUAL FRIEND AND FRIENDS COUPLE: a free three-day weekend Festival Pass to Medieval Music in the Dales (Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which also allows admission to the castle in the evenings on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday). The regular box office price for a three-day pass is £75, so being a Friend represents a significant saving. Dates for the 2022 festival are 9-11 September. Couple members obviously get two Passes.
INDIVIDUAL FRIEND AND FRIENDS COUPLE: 25% off the regular box office price for evening concerts and workshops. The only exception is our new One-to-One sessions where we can't offer a discount, so sorry! You also get £20 off the cost of the Summer School.
INDIVIDUAL FRIEND AND FRIENDS COUPLE: 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.
INDIVIDUAL FRIEND AND FRIENDS COUPLE: the chance to reserve places at daytime concerts and talks. Only Friends can reserve these places, and this means you get the pick of the seats.
ALL FRIENDS: freebies and discounted merchandise at the event and in the online shop
ALL FRIENDS: 50% discount on the Online Festival
ALL FRIENDS: special free Friends-Only events at the Online Festival. In 2022, the Online Festival will be on Friday 18th, Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th March, with Friday evening being Friends only.
