Our Patrons and Friends Schemes provide wonderful opportunities 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 Friend of Barnsley Youth Choir

The annual cost of becoming a Friend of BYC is £30.00. A friend of the choir will have their name listed on the BYC website and will also be provided with an enamel badge to wear at events in recognition of your support. Friends of BYC do not seek any specific reward - they are just keen to contribute to the choir and recognise that their contribution makes a real difference to the lives of young people in the choir.

Become a Patron of Barnsley Youth Choir 2020-2021

The annual cost of becoming a Patron of BYC is £66.00. 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:

  • Priority booking to the May and / or December Concerts
  • Regular update letters
  • Invitations to ‘Patron Only’ special events
  • Name placed onto the BYC website as a supporter

The Patrons scheme is now closed for 2019 and will reopen May 2020
To reduce administration costs further we can now offer the option to complete a standing order through your own bank by annual (£30 or £66 per year) payment. Standing order forms are available should you wish to set up this option. The vital contribution made by our Friends and 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.
