Two groups provided pre-concert music for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Last Night of the Christmas Proms. Music was also provided during the interval and there was a bucket collection at the end too!

We raised a total of £231.20! From this, the Friends will be donating 20% to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s charity and 20% to the Portsmouth Guildhall’s charity the Portsmouth Cultural Trust (they will use the money for their Creative Careers Roadshow, which will be touring local schools, supporting young people who are interested in pursuing creative careers).

Firstly, thank you to the BSO and Portsmouth Guildhall for allowing us to busk at their event.

Thank you to everyone who came to busk and to the parents who helped during the evening.

Take a look at the two videos from the evening!

Merry Christmas!
