Classic Ibiza is delighted to announce that it has partnered with Heart Four Counties and its charity, Global’s Make Some Noise, to raise funds in support of disadvantanged children, young people and their families across the UK. Heart is the UK’s biggest commercial radio brand. Its charity, Global’s Make Some Noise, is dedicated to helping small charities and projects which support disadvantaged children and young people living with illness, disablity or lack of opportunity.
Emma Bradley, Managing Director of Global Charities, comments: ‘The money raised by concert goers for Global’s Make Some Noise will support charities across the UK. Small charities like Learning Through Horses, which is based in Edgware and helps vulnerable young people who have been excluded or are at risk of exclusion from school, to develop vital life skills through working with horses.’
Heart and Global’s Make Some Noise have partnered with Classic Ibiza at four venues this summer. In addition to Hatfield House, they are Capesthorne Hall (Cheshire), Harewood House (Yorkshire) and Ragley Hall (Warwickshire). The partnership aims to raise a total of £20,000 through various fundraising activities. These include a donation of £1 from every programme sold on the evening, a recommended £5 donation from press and guest-list entries, facepainting and collection points at all onsite retailers and exit points.
Lisa Ward, Director of Revival Productions, organisers of Classic Ibiza, comments: ‘We have always looked for ways to support local charities and what better way to do this than through our partnership with Heart and Global’s Make Some Noise. Classic Ibiza is a concert for all the family and we look forward to working with the charity to help raise funds to help disadvantaged children, young people and their families.’
Classic Ibiza starts with a chill-out set where people can enjoy their picnics and a drink, or dance along as the sun fades. Then DJ Goldierocks will turn things up in the interval with a DJ set before the orchestra and vocalists return to the stage to bring a vibrant atmosphere to the summer evening. One classic dance track will follow another, as Hatfield’s grounds turn into a magical, alfresco celebration, with accompanying lasers and Balearic beats.
In addition to the amazing tracks and artists, what really sets Classic Ibiza apart is that it is a concert for all the family. Set in the delightful outdoor setting of Hatfield House, with easy access to transport links, concert goers can bring their own food and drink, or take advantage of numerous stalls selling high-quality street-food and refreshments. Car-parking is free (both for coaches and cars), so whether you are six or 60 you are assured of having a fantastic evening in a safe and family-friendly environment.
