Support Us

Belfast 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. BMS is delighted to have the support of Star Instruments for the 2020/21 centenary season.

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

We need your support now, more than ever.

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.
