Phil Kelsall in special charity concert

Posted: Sunday 8th March

Phil Kelsall in special charity concert

Monday 15th of June will see Phil Kelsall in Nottingham for two shows at the Nottingham Arts Theatre at 2.00pm & 7.30pm. 

Phil will give two entirely different performances and the evening concert will include a tribute to Eric Coates who was born at Hucknall in Nottingham.

Proceeds from the 2 shows will go to Jessie's Fund which raise money for children's music therapy.  Jessica May George was 9 years old in 1993 when she was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour.  The daughter of two professional musicians, she was learning to play piano and violin.   In response to her plight funds were raised to finance expensive treatment for her abroad. Unfortunately, Jessie never made the trip. 

She spent the last week of her life at Martin House, the children’s hospice in Yorkshire, with her family.   There was sound all around, but not the creative use of live music.   It was apparent that none of the children’s hospices around the United Kingdom offered the benefits of Music Therapy.   Jessie’s parents decided that the money raised should be put to a wider purpose to provide music therapy for terminally ill children.   Three months later Jessie’s Fund was formed as a registered charity with Victoria Wood as the patron.

I'm sure you'll agree that this is a wonderful cause and if you can make one of Phil's concerts in June, not only will you have a fantastic show with one of Britain's finest, but you will have helped to make a difference to children all over the country.

Tickets are £7.00.  For more details contact the Box Office on 0115 9476096 or visit them online
