Pay what you can
In line with government guidance, all external visitors and audience members are required to wear a face mask for the duration of their visit, including in the RCM Museum and during concerts, unless you are exempt.
Pay What You Can
Our pay what you can model for certain events allows you to choose a ticket price that works for you, from £2 to £15, with a free option to ensure our events are accessible to all audience members. Any amount you choose to spend goes towards supporting students’ music-making.
£2 helps to buy a violin string
£5 helps to fund a chamber music coaching session
£10 helps to buy a folding music stand
£15 helps to pay for an accompanist for a student performance
