Become a Friend of West Cork Music



Celebrate 25 years of West Cork Chamber Music Festival

In 2020, the West Cork Chamber Music Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary. For 25 years our Friends have been at the heart of our success, providing us with their unwavering support and trust throughout the years. It is thanks to them that we have been able to develop our fantastic schedule of festivals and educational events.

In 2020, as we pass this important milestone, we once again expect to see our festivals break more box office records as the demand  for tickets escalates.

Joining one of our subscription schemes ensures availability of good seats when booking with 8 weeks Priority Booking awarded to our Gold Friends and 4 weeks to our Silver Friends.
