Concert raises over £300 for Comic Relief

Congratulations to both the University Concert and Big Bands, who raised over £300 towards this year’s Comic Relief appeal at their concert last Friday.

A packed audience was treated to a vibrant concert taking them ‘From Bond to Basie’ under the suave leadership of conductor, Ian Swatman; the enthusiastic audience generously made a donation at the end of the gig, and obviously enjoyed themselves!

Thank you to everyone who took part, including the Music Department, Gulbenkian staff, and University students, staff, and members of the local community, together with everyone who donated: a great gig, in support of a very good cause.
