Illuminations- "Minds Alight!"
This year we are proud to present our Edinburgh Fringe show "Minds Alight!" The show will tackle the increasing problem of mental health amongst young people, conveying a powerful message of adversity, friendship and support. We hope to raise awareness, and fight the stigmas associated with mental health in an uplifting, empowering show close to all of our hearts! All profits from ticket sales at the Fringe will be donated to Young Minds, a fantastic charity which combats issues of mental health in children and young adults! But, to get us to the Fringe, we need your help, which is why we have set up this appeal! Anything we raise through Crowdfunding will cover the costs of getting us there, including venue, travel and accommodation.
Who we are?
We are a mixed contemporary A Cappella group from the University of Exeter. Quickly rising through the UK A Cappella scene, we are honoured to have just finished our first UK tour, debuting our latest EP "Ignite". On top of this we have recently released two music videos for our songs "The Sound of Silence", and "Genghis Khan // Sugar", which you can watch above! Having performed at the Edinburgh Fringe for the past two years, we are excited to return once again with what we hope will be our most powerful show yet!
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Going to the Edinburgh Fringe festival isn't cheap! Whilst we have been working hard all year to raise money, we still don't quite have enough to get us there! In doing this, it will mean our costs to attend the festival will be covered and we will therefore be able to donate a larger proportion of our ticket proceeds to Young Minds!
Where will the money go?
The money you donate will be put towards our trip to the Edinburgh Fringe. Our venue hire cost falls just short of £2000, with accommodation being closer to £4000. We have been working hard to cover costs as best we can, however we still need your support. £1000 would guarantee our place at the Fringe, however we hope to raise more which would enable us to donate a greater percentage of ticket sales to Young Minds as our costs would already be covered!
