Revival Productions, organisers of the Great British Proms and Classic Ibiza at Knebworth House in August, has chosen Garden House Hospice Care as its partner charity for this year’s event.

The Letchworth hospice will receive £2 from every ticket sold to Revival’s database of supporters, £1 from every programme sale and on-site promotional and fundraising opportunities at the event in August.

Garden House Hospice Care provides free specialist palliative care, advice and clinical support for adults and their carers and families living with a life-limiting illnesses in North Hertfordshire, Stevenage and surrounding Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire villages. The hospice provides inpatient care, a hospice at home service, a day service, 24-hour advice line, family support and training and education.

Lisa Ward of Revival Productions said, ‘We wanted to partner with a local charity and Garden House Hospice Care provides invaluable support to patients, their carers and families facing a life-limiting illness in the region.

‘I also have a strong emotional connection with Garden House Hospice Care as both my aunty and uncle, residents of Knebworth, received support and care from the charity in the latter years of their lives.’

Lisa Seccombe, director of fundraising, marketing and communications at the hospice, said they were delighted at the news. She added, ‘We need to raise over £3m in total income every year so that we can provide our services. Support from initiatives such as this will help us to achieve our target.’

The Knebworth Proms weekend begins on Saturday, August 19 with Classic Ibiza - what promises to be this summer’s coolest open-air classical dance party. The following day the stately home will host the Great British Prom, whose programme contains a feast of music from across the home nations. The National Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor Anthony Inglis, will lead proceedings and will be joined on stage by renowned artists such as soprano Annette Wardell and Classical Brit Award-winning Welsh vocal group Only Men Aloud. The evening will conclude with a fireworks finale choreographed to music.
