Why Support Us?

Since our foundation in 1921, the LCO has remained proudly independent of public subsidy. Ticket sales – even from sell-out concerts – only cover a proportion of our costs, and we therefore rely on private and corporate philanthropy to allow us to realise our vision and mission.

As we power towards our centenary year with renewed energy and vigour, we look forward to building new relationships with enlightened individuals and companies, who are equally passionate about delivering not only a world-class concert season in London and beyond, but also about developing and expanding our vital and ground-breaking community and outreach programme.


Join as an LCO Supporter from £25 per month, sponsor an Orchestra Chair or even invest in a specific element of our work in the community – there are many ways in which to get involved. In return we will give you unprecedented access to the orchestra, along with a range of benefits, which totally meet your specific requirements.


With corporate packages starting from £2,500 per annum, this is your opportunity to align your brand with performance excellence, and to receive high-profile recognition, advertising and promotional opportunities, complimentary tickets, priority booking and hospitality benefits.

For further information, please e-mail: support@lco.co.uk or call Andrew Whitlaw on +44 (0) 20 3397 1298.
