The Bayham Abbey Opera – Conquests of Love

Set in the ruins of the breath-taking 12th Century Bayham Abbey join DEBUT for an unforgettable night at the opera. Conquests of Love features an expertly curated selection of music that celebrates the very best of opera, from Carmen to La bohème, Don Giovanni to The Barber of Seville and The Pearl Fishers to Die Fledermaus. This tale of passion, power and jealousy, is brought to life through an original script with an incredible cast, direct form performances at the Royal Opera House and English National Opera. The story tells of a love between two couples that tests their fidelity and friendship. Hearts are broken, revenge is sought, egos are massaged, and ultimately, choices have to be made.

Royal Parks Half Marathon in aid of Arts 4 Dementia

Total Raised: £7546

Lizzie, Marc, Ross & John teamed up to raise money and run for cause close to all our hearts, Arts4Dementia - helping people living with dementia enjoy more music and arts! We're especially running in memory of Marc's late father and for Ross' Grandma, Margaret, who adores the piano and singing. Music and the arts has a huge role to play in keeping the brain stimulated and active, as well and increasing confidence and social interaction of the elderly - both which often suffer as dementia takes hold.
