Britten Sinfonia is a PRS Foundation Talent Development Partner supported by PPL:


Britten Sinfonia is grateful to a range of Trusts and Foundations and Statutory bodies who share our vision of what an orchestra can be, and support us in delivering our programmes.

Grants are typically made to either support core funding, or they are directed towards a specific programme activity, for example; supporting a concert series in a particular venue, funding our fantastic Learning & Participation work, helping us commission new music, developing talent etc.

We administer multiple grants, and have robust reporting and governance systems, enabling us to be fully accountable to grant making bodies.

If our work is of interest to you and you would like to know more, please contact Nick Brealey, Development Director: [email protected] or call Nick on 01223 341 014.
