Story

THANK YOU FOR VISITING! ***EVERY DONOR WILL GET THEIR NAME ON SCREEN AT THE END OF THE PERFORMANCE***

In 2013 I'm taking to the road for a mammoth tour of 100 events (info) celebrating Britten's centenary. Here, I'm raising money for an exciting part of the tour: the amazing, oil-paint-on-glass 22' Stop-Frame animation - click for preview being created by Yeast Culture to go with the Britten Third suite. My mission is to take Britten to a vast cross-section of UK society, encompassing many who would not normally hear live music, so as well as 50 concerts there will be 50 workshops in schools, hospices for children, prisons, schools for autistic children, universities and homes for the elderly, bringing them live music. I hope hundreds of donations (no matter how big or small!) will fund the visuals' completion, and for a roadie/engineer for the 1000s of tour-miles and 100 events. The animation will be a stunning and evocative accompaniment for Britten's music - an entry point for thousands of people.

At the end of the performance there will be a list scrolling on screen of all those who donated to the creation of the visuals - this is your big chance to be on screen! AND DON'T FORGET THE GIFT-AID!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
