The Cheltenham Music Festival Society (formerly Cheltenham Festival Society) is an independent charity. Its members are the Friends of the Cheltenham Music Festival and enable the Society to be one of the principal Sponsors of the Festival.

The Society supports the Festival by helping with the commissioning of new music, sponsoring individual concerts, and assisting with the production costs of the Festival Programme Book.

In 2018 your subscriptions and donations enabled the society to give £10,000 to the Festival, which was used, in part, to commission Richard Blackford's ‘Kalon’ . This will receive its world premier at the festival during
