Exeter Family Friendly sponsors Classics Galore!

Exeter Family Friendly have been confirmed as the main sponsors of this year’s Classics Galore! Concert in aid of FORCE.

The popular concert will take place at Exeter University Great Hall on Saturday November 14, and Exeter Family’s donation of £1,500 is a vital element in ensuring the event’s success.

“Our concerts rely on local sponsorship to help pay for venue hire, music, programme production, administration costs and fees. We sincerely thank Exeter Family Friendly for their generous involvement in enabling Classics Galore! to take place and continue raising funds for FORCE’s work in the local community” said organising committee chairman Annie Bassett.

Exeter Family Friendly, which specialises in health and protection insurance, is a proud supporter of FORCE, having raised thousands of pounds in recent years and backed the last three Classics Galore! concerts.

Andy Chapman, Chief Executive said: “FORCE do such fantastic work for cancer patients and their families, a cause close to our hearts, and I speak on behalf of all of our staff when I say we are proud to be able to support them.”

Tickets are on sale and every balcony seat has already been snapped up. Tickets for the auditorium are priced at £16 and £14 and are available from Exeter Visitor Information and Tickets (EVIT) at Dix’s Field – 01392 665885 or evit@exeter.gov.uk. The show regularly attracts sell-out crowds of more than a thousand.

The musical extravaganza features familiar and uplifting themes with a Last Night of the Proms style finale.

The event has been held every two years since 2007 and has raised £50,000 for FORCE.
