Weʼre raising £25,000 to The David Johnson Emerging Talent Award [DJ ETA]

Don't have time to donate right now?


To create a lasting legacy in celebration of producer David Johnson. The inaugural 'David Johnson Award for Emerging Talent' will take place at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2022. A team of scouts, chaired by arts/culture journalist Helen Hawkins will choose and present a cash award to the performer/s/show/creative independent that best reflects David's passionate and discerning eye for talent. David Johnson's flair for commercial theatre was matched, and often combined with, his fervent support of emerging and unique artists. This award will be made in that spirit.

    David Johnson lives on at the Fringe. You should get 'Our Kath' selling the C*** hats for next year's award. Well done and best of luck to the winners. We loved the pre-show performance. ❤❤❤
