Why Become a Guildhall Patron?

Guildhall School is a vibrant international community of over 1,000 musicians, actors, and production artists. As one of the world’s leading conservatoires, we are training our students to light up screens, stages and concert halls across the globe, and empowering them to become artistic citizens who make a positive impact on the world.

Our award-winning alumni have gone on to achieve great success in film and television, on Broadway and in the West End, and in a range of international music venues. They also help to drive arts projects in schools, colleges, hospitals, prisons, and other community settings. Their success is a testament to the intensive training they receive at the School.

Guildhall Patrons make a significant difference to what the School can achieve, by providing crucial funding for a variety of our activity. By becoming a Patron, you will be supporting strands of specialist training and expert masterclasses, the upkeep of the state-of-the-art equipment in our performance venues and teaching spaces, a vital programme of unique community outreach projects, and much more.

Through your involvement, you will be building a closer relationship with the School and our internationally regarded teaching staff, and joining a friendly community of fellow supporters. To thank you for being a Patron, you will be invited to exciting events and other opportunities to engage further with our work throughout the year.
