As we’ve previously reported, Gosforth Civic Theatre are taking part in The Big Give’s Christmas challenge, which means that if you make a donation between 1st-8th December, every penny will be doubled. The venue and charity are hoping to raise £7,500 in order to continue their extremely important work in the community, supporting local people and artists.

The folks at GCT also know a good opportunity for a special live performance when they see it, and have enlisted the help of Mercury-nominated songwriter Kathryn Williams to help them give their initiative a boost. The highly respected songwriter is one of the North East’s musical treasures; possessed of an uncanny ability to weave stunning storytelling with evocative arrangements, her oeuvre spans 15 albums and has seen her collaborate with the likes of Chris Difford, Paul Weller, David Gray and Neill MacColl. Kathryn will perform a free livestreamed show on Saturday 5th December at 7pm, and viewers are encouraged to donate to help raise funds to secure the future of the venue and allow them to continue their work through charity Liberdade.

You can donate to the project here, and watch Kathryn Williams’ performance on Saturday 5th December from 7pm here.
