How could your donation help?

  • With 25 additional Showcase supporters giving £10 a month we can subsidise professional recording sessions for emerging local talent.
  • 10 Headline supporters donating £20 a month would give us the ability to take professional performers out to Bury’s schools, colleges and community groups to educate and inspire across the borough.
