Help the Song Recital Series

The Bristol Song Recital lunchtime Series is a free-to-enter series of concerts. At the end of each lunchtime concert, we collect money to pay for the use of the church, for the advertising and other running expenses. Any money which remains is given to the performers - as performers ourselves, we know how important this is, and it allows us to attract the best singers.

If you would like to donate money we'd love to hear from you at martin@bristolsongrecitals.org.uk or using the contact form at the bottom of the page. 

But in order to expand, like everybody else, we need extra money! But we also need extra help in the form of ambassadors, stewards and administrators. If you feel you can help with any of these roles, please let us know. You can email martin@bristolsongrecitals.org.uk
