Transforming Communities

Patés & Puds at Hovingham Hall

On Tuesday 17th May, the Yorkshire & Lincolnshire Advisory Committee hosted a “Paté & Puds” fundraising event, as part of the celebrations for Live Music Now’s 45th birthday.

Hosted at the beautiful Hovingham Hall in North Yorkshire, sixty guests and committee members watched a performance by Live Music Now guitarist Sam Rodwell. Live Music Now’s Chief Executive Officer, Janet Fischer, and Chair of Live Music Now, Sir Vernon Ellis, were on hand to meet the guests and talk to them about the value of Live Music Now’s work, offering social impact through music.

Charlotte Tyrwhitt (Chair) who welcomed everyone to the celebration, said: “The day was enjoyed by so many of our long-standing supporters, and we, the committee, were particularly pleased that Sir Vernon Ellis and Janet Fischer could join us for such an important milestone.”

The day was a fundraising success too, raising £3,200 for Live Music Now to continue our live music delivery in care settings, hospitals, community centres and special education schools. Donations go towards supporting musicians develop their careers, and enables us to include engage more people with the transformative power of live music.
