Midsummer Music raises £34,000!
On June 24th, Rugby Portobello hosted their first ever Midsummer Music in our theatre hall. It was an incredible success, raising £34,000!
400 of the charity’s local supporters joined on our site, to enjoy the music of world-renowned pianist Melvyn Tan, soprano Nadine Benjamin, tenor Ben Thapa and pianist Brian Stanborough.
Events such as Midsummer Music enable Rugby Portobello to give thousands of young people a chance to grow and flourish in a safe and nurturing environment, offering them the opportunity to try new activities, learn new skills and develop their self-esteem while getting support and advice from trained and passionate staff members and volunteers.
The money raised from the event will be used towards their summer programmes. As well as running their in-house summer services for up to 100 children a day, they will also be taking 52 young people aged 7 to 18 years old on week-long residentials to give them an opportunity to experience life outside their normal environment.
They will be doing five residentials, all focused on team work and confidence building, as well as work ethic and scheduling for our older groups, who will be doing a working holiday in France.
Rugby Porotbello know from experience that removing a young person from their day-to-day surroundings is incredibly powerful in changing their outlook.
Schools Plus would like to thank to everyone who attended their event in our premises. We are so happy to be collaborating with a charity so passionate about giving young people a real chance at success.
KAA Theatre hall hire
Midsummer Music was hosted in our Theatre Hall. Located in the heart of the building, providing tiered seating for up to 264 people. Looking down at the lower ground level is the floor space which can be more than doubled in size when the partition wall is opened up.
It’s ideal performance and rehearsal space for hire and due to the tiered seating, it would also be a great spot for film and cinema nights. Looking for a home for your church? Give us a call or drop us an email
