Become a Friend

Support us

YMT provides opportunties to emerging artists - those that shape the artistic landscape in the future! But we need your help to do so. From as little as £1 a month you can make a HUGE difference.

We receive support from Arts Council England, the teachers' union NASUWT and many other wonderful trusts, foundations and individuals, however, we still have to fundraise around £150,000 for the Bursary Scheme, supported places on Summer Camps and Skills Courses, investment in new scripts and scores, our paid interns and voice and singing coaches. The Friends Scheme is part of that fundraising effort. It starts at a very low level (just one pound per month!) but with enough supporters we can make a real difference. Find out how your donation will support YMT’s work.

The Friends Scheme has four contributory levels:

  • Centre Stage @ £42 per month  
  • Soloist @ £25 per month
  • Supporting Role @ £10 per month
  • Join the Ensemble @ £5 per month 
  • The One Pound Plan @ £1 per month
