Give to the Great Music of the World fund

President: Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover KG

Since The Anvil opened in 1994, the International Concert Series has been a runaway success and brought many superb performers to Basingstoke.

In the last eleven years, the Fund has supported twenty-five concerts, including memorable appearances by the Leipzig Gewandhaus, St.Petersburg Philharmonic and Budapest Festival orchestras.

"Basingstoke now has a better concert hall than London"
The Times

The Anvil now presents one of the largest orchestral series in the country. However, with less than half the number of seats to sell of other concert halls, we are unable to cover the cost of bringing these great orchestras to Basingstoke from ticket revenue alone. The Great Music of the World fund gives us the security to be able to make the upfront commitment required.

"I encourage you to support the Great Music of the World fund. The Anvil is one of the finest concert halls in the country, and your help can make it even greater."
Sir Simon Rattle
