The Churchill Memorial Concert will be held on Saturday 13th May at Blenheim Palace.
The guest speaker this year will be Woody Johnson, US Ambassador to the United Kingdom (pending final approval). Music will be performed by the Oxford Philharmonic.
This will be raising funds for the Oxford Children's Hospital.
The purpose of the Concerts are to celebrate the life and achievements of Sir Winston Churchill and to benefit local and national charities.
THE CHURCHILL MEMORIAL CONCERTS TRUST
The Churchill Memorial Concerts Trust was established in 1993 to expand the range of distribution of the proceeds of the Churchill Memorial Concerts. These concerts were conceived as a means of providing funds for the Music Therapy Charity and continued to do so exclusively until 1993. It was then decided to bring other charities into the net whilst continuing to support Music Therapy Charity, the policy of the Trustees being that the charitable purposes should be primarily (though not exclusively) for Oxfordshire and be of the smaller variety, for which local funding is a crucial element.
