Tait Online Concerts
To promote the Emergency Relief Fund for Australia/New Zealand Artists we would like to share performances online to you in your home not only to our supporters here, but also for our many supporters in Australia and New Zealand. 

We want to give you all a unique experience by offering an option to make requests which would have to be submitted to us before the concert eg we would promote a season of online concerts and give a cut-off date to make requests for each concert. All requests will be acknowledged during the concert. The more notice you can give the better.

We are delighted to announce Tait Tuesdays at Home concerts on the following dates: 

Join us for our first concert of online concerts with Tait Awardees performing from their homes.

Financial Assistance
We have established an Emergency Relief Fund for Australia/New Zealand Artists to assist our talented young artists who overnight lost 6 months or more of work. Professional artists, some with losses in excess of £40,000, to artists just out of college who had a regular income of £500 to 3,000 per month which has now disappeared. Most, but thankfully not all, of the performing arts companies are claiming force majeur and leaving our awardees high and dry. Currently many of them can’t get any assistance from the U.K. government stimulus package because they are self employed, nor do they qualify for Universal Credit because they are here on restricted visas and have no access to public funds.
