Remembering St George’s Bristol

Thank you for considering leaving a gift to St George’s Bristol in your will and helping future generations enjoy what was important to you in your lifetime.

After you have made provision for those you care about, a gift to St George’s can make a huge difference to our future work. By leaving a specific gift or a share of your estate to us, or an unrestricted legacy, you will help St George’s to programme artists of the highest quality and to bring inspirational music making experiences to young people across Bristol, ensuring a gift of music for generations to come.

It is easy to include a gift to St George’s Bristol in your will. You simply need to tell your solicitor the proportion you wish to give, and they can make a suitable provision. Please see some guidance on this below.

There are 3 main types of gift you can make:

  • Residuary

    A share in, or all of, what’s left of the value of your estate after family and friends have been taken care of. The advantage of leaving a share is that it stays the same over time and you won’t need to change your will to keep up with inflation.

  • Pecuniary

    A fixed sum of money

  • Specific

    An item such as a piano, a building, or piece of art

Our charity’s details are

St George’s Bristol

Registered Charity No 295178

Address: St George’s Bristol, Great George Street, Bristol, BS1 5RR

The Harry Edwards Circle

The Harry Edwards Circle is our way of marking the generosity and lasting impact enabled by those who acknowledge St George’s in a final bequest.

Created in honour of our founding chairman, Harry Edwards, we are immensely grateful to those that pledge their support of our organisation through this circle and choose to remember St George’s in their will. It was Harry’s own passion for St George’s that saw the birth of the St George’s Music Trust (now St George’s Bristol) and it was under his leadership that the hall flourished, staging an ambitious number of concerts with professional artists.

Harry died in 1995 but through gifts he bequeathed to St George’s in his estate, his enthusiasm for the venue and love of music lives on, enriching our music programme and helping to safeguard our beautiful building.

If you are considering making a gift to St George’s and would like to speak with us in confidence and without obligation, please contact Arlene McGlynn, Head of Development, at arlene.mcglynn@stgeorgesbristol.co.uk
