How You Can Help

We enter 2023, our 25th Anniversary year, full of hope and eager to celebrate. Our Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation funding has been renewed, and, having got ourselves up and running again, post-covid, we are once again producing our own work in addition to our support for others doing the same. We are really looking forward to building on this in 2023.
More than ever, though, we need your support – we really couldn’t do it without or cherished individual donors.
We start the year working from our home base in Cornwall with the composers at Plymouth University with the seeds of a bigger collaboration in years to come.
We then return to North Shields, building on the success of Home with Gala 23, an opera gala including the first performance by our own specially created choir, the next stepping-stone in a long term plan leading to a major staged community production in the North-East
Finally, Tête à Tête the: Opera Festival returns for a third year at The Cockpit, this time also extending to Festival nights in Cornwall and Newcastle after London – a great adventure for audiences and artists right across England.
2023 began, however, with the saddest news for all of us at Tête à Tête; the death, after a short illness, of our long-standing Chair, David Leeming. He will be much missed by all of us, company, artists, funders and many of our audience alike. In a very generous gesture, his family have encouraged donations in his memory, and we would like to join them by dedicating our fundraising campaign this year to David, and the wisdom, joy and fun he brought to our operations. Should we hit our targets, we would like to stage a performance in our London Festival in September in celebration both of Tête à Tête’s 25 years and also David’s 18 indomitable years championing our work. We would so appreciate any contribution towards all this however small
(or huge!)
