Hatstand Opera: fundraising for charity with opera

Plan a charity fundraising performance by Hatstand Opera, and raising funds for your charity becomes fun again!

Whatever your charity, large or small, national or local, a Hatstand Opera charity benefit performance can raise cash, profile and interest in your worthy cause.

What’s more, you can relax in the knowledge that Hatstand Opera offer the full backup of a professional opera company to your event, from quality publicity to PR.

Who books a Hatstand Opera charity benefit event?

Regional committees for national UK charities, local charitable organisations, individuals, trustees, you name it! They found that a live performance by Hatstand Opera offered something different for their supporters, and every year, they raise substantial sums as a result. Many booked an innovative Hatstand Opera show rather than a charity gala concert in order to attract the widest range of loyal supporters and new potential donors.


Opera charity gala, charity dinner or charity concert?

We don’t mind what you call it – what you get is a great opera show in our fun and informal style! We can perform as part of many types of fundraising events including:

  • an elegant charity ball
  • a sumptuous charity gala dinner
  • a open air opera event with bring your own picnic
  • a black tie event or show – people love to dress up!
