Sponsors and Acknowledgements
The Festival is deeply indebted to our sponsors, without whose generous financial support the Festival would
not be possible - we thank them sincerely.We also gratefully acknowledge financial support from the Friends
of Music in Mayfield and express our gratitude to The Josephine Baker Trust for their generous and invaluable
help towards the fees for the young singers who are making their Festival début.
The Vicar of St Dunstan's Parish Church, Fr Nigel Prior and the PCC give their permission for the use of the
Parish Church and London House; their co-operation is very much appreciated. Thanks also to Fr Mario
Sanderson for generously giving use of the Church of St Thomas of Canterbury.
St Leonards-Mayfield School makes a hugely significant contribution to the Festival by providing venues for
committee meetings, many of the concerts and events, changing facilities and refreshments. We thank especially
Mrs Julia Dalton, Headmistress, Peter Collins, Director of Music, the Bursar, the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus
Community and the catering staff for their on-going co-operation, help and generous support.
Our thanks also go to our team of helpers led by Concert Manager Neil Wade and Box Office Manager
Brian O' Connor, who give freely of their time and expertise and ensure the Festival operates smoothly.
Individual sponsors are gratefully acknowledged on the pages of those concerts they have supported.
