We’ve been overwhelmed by your response to our campaign to raise £20k. Encouraged by your generosity, we’re doubling our end-of-August target to £40k. Huge thanks to everyone who has donated so far.
As an independent arts charity, we rely on ticket sales and conference hires to survive, so our income streams were cut off in March this year. We’ve had to make heartbreaking decisions and lost valued members of our team.
We desperately want to open safely again, but with 70% of seating capacity removed, this is not ultimately sustainable.
As well as nurturing an ecosystem of artistic partnerships to create an exciting programme, we offer up our spaces to music education charities at weekends. We also host schools concerts and subsidise events for young children and families.
Our Music Base is shared with ensembles and small arts charities doing important work. We are rooted in collaboration: we’ve shared all donated tickets with performers.
The government’s arts support package is welcome, but we don’t yet know if we will be eligible to apply.
We believe Kings Place is worth saving; we hope you do, too.
With our programme suspended and most of us, like you, confined indoors, we wanted to lift everyone’s spirits by sharing some memories of incredible performances at Kings Place
