The London Festival® have finalised partnerships with 11 charities they will be partnering with for their two-week event in 2023.
Representing some of the most important causes and initiatives affecting lives in the Capital today, the 11 charities include organisations that focus on improving literacy in disadvantaged communities. There are also those that are improving children’s lives through the power of performing arts. The charities are undertaking important work that is positively impacting London communities.
The list of charities that will be part of The London Festival include:
- Angel Shed Theatre
- The Access Project
- Hatch Enterprise
- Literacy Pirates
- Mayor’s Fund for London
- Momentum Children’s Charity
- Polka Children’s Theatre
- ReachOut UK
- Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
- UK Reads
When it comes to selection, each charity was selected by Empower London Foundation for their important work across the Capital. The charities also include high-profile charities such as Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and the Mayor’s Fund for London.
The charities that provide reading books for children are Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and UK Reads. They work to tackle the high rates of illiteracy prevalent in underprivileged communities. Londoners are supported by The Mayor’s Fund for London through food, education and employability programmes that are transforming young lives across the capital.
All the charities will be the recipients of funds raised at The London Festival®. This vibrant festival of arts, music and culture that’s set to take place in 2023, is created and produced by Nascent Vek Productions. The aim of the festival is to raise between 10 and 15 million for the festival’s partners. This will allow them to continue running educational programmes, supporting entrepreneurs, and championing underprivileged communities, under-realised individuals, and disadvantaged children across the capital.
The London Festival is still accepting additional partners despite finalizing the 11 charities. Local charities that wish to partner with the Festival are encouraged to get in touch with the organisation online.
Managing director Nascent Vek Productions, Michael S. Darcy said: “We’re extremely proud to be working with some of these incredible charities that are really changing the lives for people across London. Our London Festival is getting closer and closer, and now we have secured these partnerships, our fundraising has been given even more momentum. It promises to be a spectacular event, in aid of a great cause.”
