Support Us

BMS Logo_BlackBelfast Music Society, like any arts organisation, is dependent on funding for its survival. BMS has been fortunate to have had the support of  the Arts Council of Northern Ireland for many years, as well as partnerships with BBC Radio 3, Queen’s University, Moving on Music and the Contemporary Music Centre in Dublin.

Sponsors like Direct Wine Shipments and Radisson Blu have been valued sponsors in the past, and Barclays Wealth became the BMS’s first headline sponsor for the 90th anniversary season in 2010/11.

Individuals have also played their part by becoming donors or BMS Friends, enabling the support and nurture of young musicians from Northern Ireland.

You can support BMS in several ways:

  • You can donate at any time, either as a one-off payment or a regular contribution.
  • You can become a BMS Friend, either at a Silver or Gold level.
  • You can leave a legacy for the future, by making a gift to BMS in your will.
  • Businesses can sponsor particular initiatives or projects. Please contact for further information.

However you choose to support us, you can be assured that your contribution will go towards helping up-and-coming local artists, widening access to live music, and enhancing training opportunities for young professional musicians.
