If you like what we do but are unable to support us in person, why not become a sponsor?

We would gladly talk to businesses and individuals who might be interested in supporting us. Please take a look at the following simple and effective sponsorship opportunities, which are tailored to create a personal attachment to what the choir is doing at present.

Option 1: Sponsor a New Singer

New members are provided with sheet music, our uniform and other items to support them. Our singers also pay an annual membership subscription to cover running costs. Why not sponsor our next new member? By contributing towards his first year costs? In return we will acknowledge your support in our publicity. We will also update you on the singer’s progress and invite you to his first performance with the choir.

Option 2: Sponsor a Song

Each January, the choir requires sheet music for a new repertoire of new songs which will be performed for the first time at our Festival Concert in April. This takes place at Nottingham’s Albert Hall before an audience of seven hundred. A typical piece of music for more than 80 singers costs approximately £500. Why not sponsor a new piece of music? In return we will welcome you as a guest to see and hear our first performance of the song at our Festival Concert and acknowledge your generosity in print or on stage.

Option 3: Sponsor our Festival Concert Programme and Publicity

The Festival Concert at Nottingham Albert Hall is the choir’s most important performance of the year. It showcases new songs in our repertoire and introduces our followers to guest artistes. The audience is also updated on the choir’s progress and its work for good causes. A significant proportion of the proceeds enables the choir to promote a number of fundraising concerts in aid of good causes throughout the following year. The cost of publicity and printing alone is a significant sum of money Last year it exceeded £1000! Why not help us publicise our next Festival Concert?

Successful promotion is vital in ensuring that we attract a large audience and in taking full advantage of opportunities for further media coverage after the event. Major sponsors for our printing and publicity of the Festival Concert will be acknowledged on the night and on other occasions throughout the year. They will also be offered complimentary tickets for the Festival Concert, alongside other VIPs, as well as complimentary tickets for our Christmas Concert.

If you are interested in finding out more, please use the CONTACT US link on the website to get in touch with our secretary.

Friends of Carlton Male Voice Choir

Since 2004 we have had a formal organisation called the Friends of CMVC. This is a group of supporters of the choir who want to keep in touch with choir activities and concerts. For a small fee each year the Friends receive a copy of the Newsletter, three times a year; advanced notice of future concerts and events; and a small subsidy on the price of a ticket for the annual Festival Concert. They are welcome at all choir concerts and events and if sufficient places exist they can join us on overseas visits, and tours in this country.

If you would like more information about our Friends’ group please contact  Jacky Toplis who will be pleased to talk to you about membership and furnish you with a membership application form.
