We could not achieve the Havant Music Festival without the generous support of our sponsors Havant Rotary Club, the Meridian Centre and Hampshire County Councillor Jackie Branson as well as the super performers, many of whom do this for the love of music.
Many churches and community halls welcome our concerts, and we thank them, too. Especially though, I would like to thank the organising committee, all volunteers, who plan the performances, help with publicity and support each event. A huge thank you to all of them.
If our efforts this year succeed in making a profit, this will be put partly to fund the 5th Havant Music Festival, and partly to take music into schools as well as helping young musicians and some local musical groups. I spoke last September at a conference about the vital role music can play as a therapy for many, and with funding for music and the arts disappearing in our schools, we will try to do what we can to share with residents of Havant and young people the joys of listening to or making music.
Thanks to all of you, our audiences, for coming to support us.
See you next year!!
Please stay safe and well till we can meet again.
Chair, Havant Music Festival committee.
