DATE to be confirmed

Music for a summer afternoon, Southbourne

What better way to spend a lazy summer Sunday afternoon, than listening to wonderful classical music and enjoying a delicious afternoon tea. 

Listen to professional musicians, as well as  local music students. Buffet style afternoon tea with all the usual tempting delights!

Booking essential as limted tables - £5 per person.

How the money works:

We are raising £5,900 which is the cost of delivering the Yak Pack Project itself,

in Spiti, from 5th July to 31st July 2021. 

The Yak Pack performance team are contributing their time for free in the UK and India, and will be paying for their own

flights, visas, high altitude insurance, and food/accommodation for time spent in India outside of the Project dates.

Overall, the team will be spending about £6,000 of their own money.

​​​Every penny counts!

£5 pays for a child to enjoy a story-telling performance

£25 pays for 25 children to receive an illustrate-it-yourself copy of 'Rubbish Heap Rising'

£50 pays for a teacher to attend a 2-day Read Aloud workshop

£100 pays for a days trek and 6 pairs of hands collecting litter from the Himalayas

£200 pays for a whole village to have a performance and craft workshop

 

Your donations pay for:

  • Staging performances throughout the Spiti Valley, with an aim of reaching 1200 children and families (10% of population)

  • Workshops with 'Lets Open a Book' for local teachers to empower reading aloud

  • Craft workshops for children to make instruments and toys from collected litter and reused materials

  • Donations of books for every library we visit (including school libraries)

  • Illustrate-it-yourself book copies of the performed story for audience children

  • Paying for a local actor/narrator to join our team for 3 weeks

  • Paying a driver/guide, and local transport, to join our team for 3 weeks

  • Rehearsal and performance space rental in Spiti

  • Props and costumes

  • Litter picking to help clean up popular trekking routes

  • Accommodation in homestays and food, during the project weeks, for UK and Spitian Project members

 

 

 

We are committed to using locally owned businesses so that every rupee spent by the project

directly benefits residents of the Spiti Valley.

 

A huge THANK YOU to all our supporters in 2018.

Not only did we reach our fund-raising target, we also smashed our target of reaching 1000 children - we estimate 1850 people saw the show, about 1500 of whom were children.
