Philanthropy plays a pivotal role in ensuring the Festival’s sustainability, enabling us to deliver the highest artistic experiences possible. Becoming a CSF Patron offers unique opportunities for you to have a deeper experience with the artistic riches of the Festival all year round.

Our Patrons who contribute annual ongoing gifts of varying denominations to CSF are at the very heart of this treasured multi arts and cultural celebration. As a Patron, you will become a part of a very special group of people who are recognised for their loyalty and commitment that helps shape and sustain this extraordinary organisation and Festival.

Patron’s can enjoy performances, parties and more…

  • Priority booking of Festival tickets
  • Regular insider Festival updates and Patrons e-news
