A huge thank you to everyone who donated to The Big Give 2014!

David Bintley creating The King Dances

An overwhelming show of generosity has meant that we’ve reached our target of £80,000 in just two days – a wonderful achievement for which everyone at Birmingham Royal Ballet is truly grateful.

This year, donations made through The Big Give are contributing to The King Dances, David Bintley’s new ballet that will celebrate his 20th anniversary as Artistic Director of the Company. Thanks to our fantastic donors, we’re much closer to fully funding this new piece through philanthropic support, much like The Prince of the Pagodas in 2013.

“It’s thrilling to see how much Birmingham Royal Ballet’s audiences care about seeing new ballets and dancers performing at the top of their game”, said Geoff Sweeney, Director of Development.

“The first week of December is always an exciting time for the Company as The Nutcracker gets everyone in the Christmas spirit and we really appreciate the generosity The Big Give inspires in our audiences. I can’t wait to see The King Dances when it makes its premiere in June 2015.”

Sadly there’s no matched funding left for Saturday 6th December (and we double checked!), but if you’d like to make a donation towards The King Dances please click here. Any donation you can make will be a big help.
