Description

We’d love to welcome you along to a musical evening in support of Refettorio Felix at St Cuthbert’s and The Felix Project on Friday 27th April 2018.

The evening will be held at the location of this vibrant community kitchen and drop-in centre in Earls Court, which from Monday to Friday provides a safe sanctuary for a range of vulnerable people such as rough sleepers and those with mental health issues.

Since June, and through a recent partnership Chef Massimo Bottura’s non-profit organisation Food for Soul, the charity has become known for its unique lunch service. This uses surplus ingredients discarded from supermarkets, delivered by The Felix Project, to create high-quality and nutritious three-course meals for those living on or below the poverty line. As well as these amazing efforts to curb food waste and alleviate food poverty, the charity also offers a range of fundamental services including counselling sessions, washing facilities, housing/job searching assistance and structured creative activities.

All funds raised from the evening will go straight back into supporting both the The Felix Project and the Refettorio. For the price of a ticket, you’ll be helping to ensure that surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away is distributed to those who are hungry. You'll also be helping the Refettorio to provide a rough sleeper with a warm multi-course meal, a hot shower, clean clothes and an opportunity to spend the day in a safe and caring environment.

The Centre’s high ceiling and theatrical stage area provide the perfect setting for a special live performance showcasing two classical music favourites. The programme is as follows:

6.30pm: Arrival and welcome to the venue

7pm: Concerto for 2 Violins in D minor, BWV 1043 (Johann Sebastian Bach)

7.30pm Interval (complementary glass of wine included; treats made at the centre will also be on sale)

8pm: Piano Trio No. 2 in C minor (Felix Mendelssohn)

Each piece of music will be preceded by a brief introduction by the performers, which we hope will help to bring the music alive. Further information on the work of both charities will also be provided.

Thank you for your support!
