Weʼve raised £445 to Help fund St Michael's Arts Festival 2018
- London Borough of Lambeth, London, UK
- Funded on Sunday, 14th October 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This year, 2018, we're planning to build on the successes of 2017 and expand: we have a rich and varied programme we hope to deliver, including a pre book-launch event with the author of the The King's Speech and an evening with Simon Russell Beale... and we need your help.
Our lead sponsor is Ludlow Thompson estate agents, but please donate to our Crowdfunding page here at Justgiving and enable the festival to do all that it can to bring the arts to life in our local postcode of SW9. Stockwell Conservation Area has a huge pool of talent - we're hoping to fire up creativity in our community and build our neighbourhood, centred around the wonderful Grade 2 listed church here at its heart. Our goals? Inform, Educate, Entertain, Build. To the highest standard possible.
The events planned include: Festival Concert - Brahms Requiem and Elgar Cello concerto with Medici Choir & Brixton Chamber Orchestra; Pre book-launch event with Peter Conradi, author of The King's Speech; poetry and prosecco evening with performance poet Sarah de Nordwall; an evening of workshops for 13-18yrs with Lemon Wedge Film Club; 2 performances of Salieri's Opera "First the music, then the words" with Lunchbreak Opera conducted by Matthew O'Keeffe; Art Exhibition in the church with an opening night reception on Weds 3rd October; Festival Eucharist with music from Gallery Singers, conducted by Duncan Mackenzie; very special guest star Simon Russell Beale on Friday 12th October, being interviewed by Sky Political Editor Adam Boulton; other events in the pipeline include a comedy night and music from Soprano Katherine Watson, soloist at the BBC Proms in 2017.
Profits from StMaf18 will be split between future festivals and the Friends of St Michael's - a registered charity seeking the welfare of the fabric of the church building, and with the aim of equipping the local community with a worthy resource.
