Thank you to all of you who attended our 30th Anniversary at Australia House on the 30th November. It was a magical evening and a fitting tribute to our 30 years supporting young performing artists from Australia & Zealand.

The Tait Memorial Trust

The Tait Memorial Trust was formed in 1992 by Isla Baring OAM in memory of Sir Frank and Viola, Lady Tait and the Tait brothers who played such an important part in the establishment of theatre and the performing arts in Australia & New Zealand. The Trust offers awards/grants for postgraduate study, performance opportunities to young musicians and performing artists from Australia and New Zealand, and general help in the furtherance of their careers while resident in the UK.
