We are so grateful for the support of all of our VBFriends.

In 2023, your support made up over 52% of our income; without it, we simply wouldn’t be able to exist. Every donation, whatever its size, enables us to make exceptional productions of Baroque music and drama open to everyone, to develop and deliver our education work, and to provide a platform for emerging artists to perform and create alongside some of the industry’s leading lights.

A heartfelt thank you to our current supporters:
