The Wigmore Hall Trust is very pleased to announce that His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent KG has become the first Royal Patron of Wigmore Hall.

The Duke of Kent has enjoyed a long association with Wigmore Hall, and has been a regular member of the audience for many decades. In recent years the Duke has presented Dame Felicity Lott with the Wigmore Hall Medal, and he also presented Sir András Schiff with the Gold Medal of the Royal Philharmonic Society at a Wigmore Hall recital in 2013.

As Royal Patron, The Duke of Kent will continue to present awards at celebratory concerts, as well as attending special galas and events.
