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.

Tait Online Concerts
The 2020 Tait Tuesdays at Home concert series was very popular and will continue into 2021 with Tait Awardees (and special guests) performing from their homes and specially recorded concerts.
To promote the Tait Emergency Relief Fund for Performing Artists from Australia & New Zealand in the United Kingdom we are sharing performances online to you in your home not only to our supporters here in the U.K., but also for our many supporters in Australia and New Zealand.
