Sponsors & Funders

Thank You…

We warmly thank our generous supporters who have made possible another year of opera in Ireland’s Ancient East. We rely on your support, enthusiasm and community spirit to help us present outstanding performances in the Blackwater Valley region.

We are appreciative of the unflagging support of our sponsors. Our sponsors allow us to directly fund our performances and to support emerging artists with exceptional talent, thus ensuring the future of quality classical music and opera for generations to come. We are also deeply grateful for the support our sponsors give to our Schools Programme, through which we hope to foster a love of music in the children of our beloved region.

Each year, a highlight of BVOF is the different historic venues that become animated by the performing arts and committed audiences. We would not be able to host these events without the support of our venue hosts. To the hosts and teams at Cappoquin House, Salterbridge House, Tourin House, Lismore Castle, St Mary’s Collegiate Church, St Carthage’s Church, and Dromore Yard we thank you. Your generosity and dedication to our vision are greatly appreciated.

Finally, BVOF would not be the festival it is today without the hard work and passion our volunteers and local heroes bring to it. Throughout each year, we receive all kinds of offers of help and support; truly, this does not go unnoticed. You – our community – are the heart of this festival, and we only hope that we can continue to earn the privilege of your involvement.
