A final update to say a huge Thank You to everyone who has supported and shared our Building a Sound Future crowdfund appeal which is now officially closed.
This has been our first ever crowdfund and with matched funding and gift aid, has reached the incredible total of £140,508 with a total of 370 backers.
The support of so many has ensured we have reached the final target of our overall Building a Sound Future appeal, £6.3M. We were delighted to be able to welcome audiences back to a reopened hall for our new Autumn season last Friday evening with the fantastic news that the appeal target has now been reached.
We announced two lucky Golden ticket winners last Friday evening and will also be in contact with all supporters regarding any remaining rewards (such as the Education reward draw for the school to benefit from their very own Minibeats performance) in the course of this week.
Do please continue to follow progress with all aspects of our Building a Sound Future project via our website (www.stgeorgesbristol.co.uk) and you will soon be able to see first hand, from February next year, just how the money raised is being spent when the project completes.
We are open for concerts now throughout the Autumn and then from February 24th for a week of reopening events to celebrate the new St George's with the new extension completed, the reconfigured crypt with its heritage interpretation space in place, the redecorated and fully accessible hall and restored gardens, steps and boundary walls all completed... all contributing to completing the vision for St George's as a world class centre for music and ideas for the people of Bristol.
Thank you so much for all of your support!
