Upgrading your Membership

Thank you for considering increasing your support for the CBSO. By upgrading your membership today your support will be matched pound for pound (up to £100,000) by two of our Sound of the Future campaign board members. Whilst we know the benefits we’re able to offer during lockdown are limited, we are committed to providing behind the scenes news and special experiences exclusive to CBSO members and your support during this time is very much appreciated.

To upgrade your membership online, simply select the membership level below you wish to upgrade to and follow the steps to complete your purchase online.

If you want to pay by monthly or annual Direct Debit, if you would prefer to upgrade at your annual renewal point, or if you have any questions about your membership, please contact Bethan McKnight on 0121 616 6510.
