Update dated 29/05/2020
A message from Peter Millican OBE, Executive Chair, Kings Place
To our audience and the whole Kings Place community,
It’s more than two months since the outbreak of Covid19 forced the suspension of our programme, so we wanted to give you an update.
Firstly, and most importantly, a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in this difficult time. We are bowled over by your generosity. In the last two months, we have received more than £21k in ticket donations, which we have shared with our artists and speakers, and more than £6k in individual donations. We have also been touched and inspired by the lovely messages of support you have shared with us: they help to keep us focused on a positive future.
While our physical venue might be closed, an exciting virtual Kings Place is emerging. You will have noticed that we have launched an active on-line programme over the last few weeks, streaming filmed concerts from our archive through our new KPlayer every Wednesday, and presenting new live spoken word events with partners like Steve Richards and Jewish Book Week. Check out the online events section of our website for details. We’ll continue to programme over the summer and hope to run some closed-door, streamed performances and small live events later in the year.
Looking ahead, it’s still not possible for us to put a date on reopening safely. In the meantime, as a self-funded venue with no income, we are in a critical situation. We want to be able to open our spaces again to young musicians, families, festival partners and an array of artists, but until that is possible, we need to keep the charity, Kings Place Music Foundation, operating.
There’s a mountain to climb, but, with your help, we will do it
We very much look forward to sharing great live performances with you again soon.
Wishing you all good health
