Since lockdown began we have produced a weekly online concert featuring our Awardees, or in some cases notable Australians or New Zealanders in the Arts in the UK. The concerts have entertained our Friends and supporters and also provided greatly needed income for the artists. We offer a simple split of the net box office with 80% going directly to the artists, and 20% to the Tait Memorial Trust Emergency Relief Fund for young Australian/New Zealand performing artists resident in the UK* who have lost all their work due to the ongoing pandemic.
Upon buying a ticket you are sent a link to view the recital at any time for a period of 6 months from the first broadcast!

To those of you who have supported these concerts we can’t thank you enough.
To see the concerts available to view now:
The ‘in conversation’ with Simone Young AM, Leanne Benjamin AM OBE and Steven McRae was first broadcast May 26th and is unique amongst our catalogue of recordings as it is an open conversation between 3 giants from their respective artforms.
The direct link to book is here. You only have a few days left to see it as it goes offline on December 1st.
*At the moment the fund is available only to Tait Awardees and to the artists who performed for us in the Bushfire concert in March. If more money comes in we may be in a position to broaden its scope.
