The Light in the Stone

To raise funds for the initial run and development of The Light in the Stone - a storytelling experience with live music.

We did it!

On 17th Oct 2017 we successfully raised £1,378 with 43 supporters in 28 days

The Light in the Stone, is a storytelling performance with live music drawing on legends and folktales from Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It is a  tale of ancient light and sacred secrets.

We will be performing this story in London this Interfaith week on the 14th and 16th November and again on the 9th December.  We plan to tour it around the country next Spring.  

£1,500 will cover our venue, insurance, technician, equipment and recording costs for the three performances. Anything we raise over this will go towards marketing, artists fees and administration costs. The more money we raise the better equipped we will be to mount a national tour in 2018! 

We have some pretty fun rewards, so please read more about us and pledge. We hope to see you at a performance of The Light in the Stone soon.
