Become a Patron

Our Patrons Scheme provides a wonderful opportunity for people to support the choir. This support makes a huge difference to the opportunities that we are able to offer our children and we hope that those that get involved feel proud to be connected to the organisation.

Become a Patron of Barnsley Youth Choir 2023-2024

The annual cost of becoming a Patron of BYC is £84.00, the equivalent of £7 per month. This scheme entitles you to two free vouchers.  One voucher can be exchanged for one concert ticket to the May or December Concerts.  Patrons are also entitled to the following benefits:

  • 2 free concert tickets for the Spring and / or Christmas Concerts
  • Priority booking to the Spring and / or Christmas Concerts
  • Regular update letters
  • Invitations to ‘Patron Only’ special events
  • Name placed onto the BYC website as a supporter

The Patrons scheme for 2023-24 is now closed for new applications.  It will reopen in May 2024.

To reduce administration costs further we can now offer the option to complete a standing order through your own bank by annual (£84 per year) payment. Standing order forms are available should you wish to set up this option. The vital contribution made by our Patrons enables our young people to attend the choir irrespective of their financial backgrounds.  Every penny of this contribution will go directly to providing opportunities for young people and enables the choir to keep costs down and support children from low-income families. We hope that you are able to share our vision; to provide this wonderful opportunity for all young people in Barnsley and to be fully inclusive.
