2020 Proms announcement

As music-lovers first and foremost, we welcome the news from the BBC that the 2020 season of Sir Henry Wood Proms will go ahead in an alternative format. We are in the process of determining what we can do to continue to support musical charities throughout the 2020 Proms season and will announce further details on this in due course.

2019 collection total and distribution

Following the recent Trustees’ meeting we are delighted to announce that the toal amount donated this year was a record breaking £121,842.95. The collection has been distributed as follows:

Help Musicians UK £43,990
CLIC Sargent £34,880
Richard House Children’s Hospice £17,405
London Music Fund £12,580
National Orchestra for All £12,580

We couldn’t have collected this magnificent total without the generosity of the Proms audiences or the hard work of our collectors, so thank you to everyone who played their part.

Please note that if you would like to make an application for support from the collections to be made at the 2020 season of the Sir Henry Wood Promenade Concerts, we have recently added a more detailed Guidance page.
