It is impossible to put together a project of the scale of our 2019 revival of Judith without plenty of goodwill and support. We are hugely grateful to all our supporters: for a comprehensive list, please see below. The London English Song Festival is a registered charity, number 1159818, and as such any monies received and any profits made will be ploughed into our current and future projects. These strive to increase awareness of English Song and Oratorio, and by extension, classical music, within an educational narrative, and the LESF is gaining a reputation on the UK stage for compelling and innovative programming.

There are six levels of support for Judith: each comes with a different level of involvement in the project, but we are equally grateful to all who are able to help.
