Herne Hill Music Festival's crowdfunding campaign is underway to source an additional £1000 to help pay for staging of Benjamin Britten's opera, 'Noye's Fludde' (1957) in October. The Festival has a grant but needs to raise more money equal to the same amount! You can donate through gogetfunding http://gogetfunding.com/project/noye-s-fludde or through the Festival website at http://www.hernehillfestival.org/. This is a community opera based on the story of Noah’s Ark and on a 15th-century mystery play. It remains one of Britten's most engaging works as he wrote it for amateurs, especially children, in order to enjoy planning, rehearsing, performing and generally making music together.
