All the profits from Lowde Fest are donated to The Lowde Music Trust (registered charity number 1166852)
Thank you to everyone who supported Lowde Fest 2016. You are amazing and are helping make music for good.
If you would like to get involved and help out at Lowde Fest 17, then we would love to hear from you. Lowde Fest is a fundraising event for the Lowde Music Trust, and so the more help we get from our fantastic volunteers the better.
Lowde Fest was established in 2011 as a fund raising event in support of The Lowde Music Trust.
The concept is really simple...
....to provide a fantastic family day out with amazing live music, wonderful beer, and great food.
This combination has proved really popular and so preparations for Lowde Fest 2017 are now underway.
Music for Good is our motto, but its more than than just a motto. Its the truth behind everything that the LOWDE MUSIC TRUST (LMT) is doing.
As an organising team we are aware that your support is a vital component in helping us achieve this fun family event, while at the same time raising money for a range of good causes.
For those of you who don’t know, Lowde Fest is a fund raising event for a charitable trust called THE LOWDE MUSIC TRUST (registered charity number 1166852 - www.thelowdemusictrust.org).
The Trust is managed by an independent board of Trustees who ensure that money raised and donated is done so in line with the Trust’s objectives and purpose.
Lowde Fest Ltd (the event organising company) is wholly owned by the Trust and also governed by the Trustees who sit on the board. This ensures that the event itself is produced in line with the Trust’s objectives and that all profit is donated directly to the Trust for distribution to its chosen causes. We have also just appointed KPMG to manage the accounts and audit our books.
The Lowde Music Trust has two primary objectives:
1. To help advance the education of young people in the subject of music and creative performance by: a) awarding to such persons scholarships, maintenance allowances, grants or support services and equipment not normally provided by the statutory authorities and b) facilitating mentorship and providing support in music and creative performance
2. To help in the relief of sickness and the preservation of health among young people through: a) direct financial support for the use of music as therapy, b) providing other charitable organisations who are working in the relief of sickness and preservation of health among young people with financial means and/or partnering support and c) by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities, support services and equipment not normally provided by the statutory authorities
At the board meeting of Trustees held 24th March 2016 it was agreed that this year the Lowde Music Trust would use funds raised by Lowde Fest 2017 to help support the following charities:
