One of the most crucial sources of income to keep the festival going is the invaluable support from Festival Patrons – just like you! Whether you’re a regular attendee or a first-timer, you can become a Patron or join the year-round Patron Plus scheme – both of which not only assist the festival enormously, but also entitle you to great benefits in return:

  • Priority ticket access
    Patrons can buy two adult tickets per event, per patronage, plus unlimited children’s tickets.
  • 10% off festival merchandise
    Orkney Folk Festival merchandise only. Tickets and artist merchandise not included.

Thank you for supporting the festival.

Patron Plus

We also have an additional tier of support – the year-round Patron Plus scheme.

For a monthly direct debit of at least £5, you’ll be entered into the Patron Plus draw which pays out half the total cash value collected from the scheme that month (currently over £250), with the other half directly benefitting the festival. A contribution of £5 per month (£60 per annum) gives you one number in the monthly draw, £10 gives two, and so on.

As a Patron Plus member you’ll also receive the benefits of Festival Patronage listed above.

To register for Patron Plus, we must take a few details from you. If you would like to find out more, or sign up, please email us at
