Registered Charity No. 1159861


Our Patronage Scheme is the life-blood of BYC.  A twelve-month standard patronage costs £45.00, which entitles you to two free vouchers or a double patronage entitles you to four free vouchers.  One voucher can be exchanged for one concert ticket to the May or December Concerts.  You will then be entitled to the following:-

  • 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

Our Gold Patronage is £100 per year or £8.33 per month if paying by standing order and entitles you to the benefits listed above plus the following:-

  • 4 Free Vouchers to the May and/or December Concerts
  • VIP treatment at May and/or December Concerts which includes free refreshments in a VIP room, free programme and reserved seating
  • Opportunities for reduced advertising in the programmes

To reduce administration costs further we can now offer the option to complete a standing order through your own bank by monthly (£3.75/£7.50/£8.33 per month) or annual (£45/£90/£100 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 patronage will go directly to providing opportunities for young people and will enable the choir to function.  Without this Scheme, BYC would be unable to support young people in the way that it does.

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.  With your support we can continue to function and in doing so support young people in our community.

If you would like to show your support for BYC by becoming a Patron, please contact our Patrons Secretary Carol Bentley using the form below.
