Your Festival, Your Gift

Dear Supporter,

It is always a difficult thing to consider, but I encourage you to think about leaving a Legacy gift to the Festival.

Leaving a gift to the Newbury Spring Festival in your will is a very special way to support our work, ensuring that your passion underpins the musical engagement of future generations.

If you’ve enjoyed the Festival over the years and are determined to see the tradition continue to be celebrated and nurtured, a legacy offers an opportunity to make your support for us permanent and enduring.

Thank you,

Ashley Morris, General Manager

If the Festival has touched and enhanced your life, we invite you to consider a legacy gift that will continue our mission to present the best of world class music in and around Newbury, at the most affordable prices.

The Festival continues to bring excellent, new and innovative work from around the world to a variety of local venues adding to the economic and cultural wellbeing of the area, and to create opportunities for young people, existing and new audiences to enjoy the arts.

Newbury Spring Festival is funded entirely by private donation, charitable giving and corporate sponsorship and enjoys its reputation as one of the most important cultural events in the region, attracting audiences of several thousand each year from far and wide.

Our Legacy Policy

The policy of the Festival is to use gifts in wills to help fund the future of the Festival. Since needs change over the years, we encourage supporters to leave a gift in your Will for the general purposes of the Festival, rather than for a restricted purpose.

The Festival staff will discuss with executors the most appropriate use of the gift in the light of current projects and the donor’s known areas of interest in the Festival (e.g. children and youth, new music, venues).

We strongly advise you see a solicitor when writing or amending your will.

3 Simple Steps:

  1. We encourage every adult to make a Will and review it regularly.
  2. We encourage all supporters to consider leaving a gift to the Festival in their Will.
  3. If you’d like to know more about Legacy giving, please contact the office.

Suggested wording for your will:

“I give % of my residuary estate OR I give the sum of £ (pounds only) free of all taxes to the Newbury Spring Festival (Charity Number 284622) for its general purposes, and I declare that the receipt of an officer of Newbury Spring Festival shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors and trustees.”
