Event description

Description

So yes, there’s a royal wedding that day. And yes, it’s the Cup Final, but it’s also FRANFEST, a one night festival that a few old friends are putting together to celebrate the life and spirit of the inimitable Francesca Hanley.

Our hope is that FranFest will raise the roof, your spirits – and a lot of money for two brilliant causes: firstly, Maggie’s Centre in Oxford, a place and community of people that offered Fran and Bernie a lot of comfort and support, and secondly, a new project for young musicians being set up in Fran’s name (more details on the night!).

Expect songs, music and words – including some very special, one night only, collaborations - from many of Fran’s friends and colleagues. As all the best festivals are, the line up is eclectic – everything from The Big Sing gospel choir to solo piano, a one-night-only band made up of Fran’s colleagues at the Musicians' Union, music from the South Americas and the CYM Dance Band. There will be cake and a bar so that we can all also raise a glass to the lovely, amazing Fran.

We hope that you can come along and be part of what promises to be a gathering full of warmth, love, laughter and everything else we all associate with knowing Fran.

Tickets are £5 (with a suggested donation of £10).

Hope to see you there!

If you can’t come along, but would like to be kept up to date with the brilliant new project being set up in Fran’s memory, please email Geoff Harniess and we will make sure we keep you in the loop.
