Weʼre raising £7,000 to fund a new people's opera 'Bloom Britannia'
- St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Bloom Britannia is Barefoot Opera's new 'people's opera' – four years in the making - inspired by life in a coastal town in modern Britain, involving people from the communities of Hastings, St. Leonards-on-sea and Bexhill singing alongside professional musicians. The project is open to anyone from any background, to people of all ages, all singing abilities and levels of experience.
Barefoot Opera believes that opera – and singing - can be a fundamental, live-changing part of everyone’s lives. And so, alongside the opera is a wide-ranging and inclusive outreach project that brings the experience of singing and music-making to hundreds of local people, partner organisations, schools and charities.
For a small company, this project and the wealth of people we are reaching, is colossal.
YOUR DONATION HOWEVER SMALL ENABLES US TO SUPPORT: workshop leaders, young artists, our local venues, local free-lance administrators, and organisers.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - and come and enjoy the show! Our full production will be during the latter half of October 2021.
