Their financial support enables SWCS to continue to work with gifted young professional musicians to perform established and new works in Saffron Hall, one of the UK’s finest concert halls.

In recent years we have also had the opportunity to work with talented local groups such as Bishop’s Stortford Sinfonia and Cambridge Philharmonic which has extended the reach our of audience. As well as performing with local groups, SWCS occasionally performs with professional orchestras such as the internationally acclaimed London Philharmonic.

We are always looking for local companies to support Saffron Walden Choral Society. In return for financial support, we can offer:

  • Free programme advertising
  • Complimentary concert tickets
  • Free use of a reception area at Saffron Hall for you to entertain clients
  • Promotion of your company at all supported events
