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.
