It costs Cambridge Summer Music around £150,000 each year to bring world-class music and musicians to venues across our historic city.

As a registered charity which receives no regular public funding, our success depends on the support of individual supporters and local businesses. Please read on to find out how you or your business can help CSM in various ways.


Join over 100 dedicated individuals who make Cambridge Summer Music happen as a donor through our Friends Scheme. All Friends receive priority booking for all concerts, priority seating for all unreserved concerts, and an invitation to our annual private reception.

“I support CSM because it offers a real and very uplifting opportunity to see and hear talented musicians playing wonderful music.”
