With your support, Kings Place battled through 2020.
We lost members of our valued team, countless much-anticipated performances and festivals, and all the income from the business events that supports our work.
But it was also a year of revelation and innovation: we’ve been so moved by the generosity of our audiences and community. We developed a hybrid venue: a model for socially-distanced events and ways of sharing them on the KPlayer. You engaged with this new platform and told us what you thought on the chat.
We also received a lifeline from the DCMS Culture Recovery Fund, but it was not predicated on a third, extended national lockdown in 2021.
We ask you to help us now in this moment of extreme challenge. We want to be able to continue to offer our spaces for permitted closed door recordings and for young musicians to rehearse and be mentored. We also want to continue to bring you life-enhancing events online and to offer performers opportunities in these incredibly difficult times.
Thank you for helping us to re-build a future for Kings Place in 2021.
