The Society is a registered charity (no 273310).

Its charitable objective is “to educate the public in the arts and sciences and in particular the art and science of music by the presentation of concerts and other activities”. Details of the Society’s registration and other matters recorded by the Charity Commission can be seen here and entering the charity reference 273310 in the search box.

Details shown on the Charity Commission website include:

  • Activities of the Society
  • Accounts summaries over the last 5 years
  • Compliance with the Commission’s reporting requirements
  • Trustees (as at the date of the last submission)

As a registered charity all donations to RTWCS can be treated as Gift Aid; this is encouraged as it enables RTWCS to reclaim from HMRC the notional tax assumed to have been paid by the donor. A Gift Aid Form is available for download here.

Subscriptions paid by members and ticket sales revenue are not sufficient to fund all the Society’s activities so we rely also on Friends and Patrons, and Sponsors (both individual and corporate) to make up the shortfall.
