A personal message from Peter Gill:
"We all know how hard Covid-19 has hit everyone, and I am keenly aware that we are all being asked to lend our financial support to many, many very worthwhile causes. There are two causes very close to my heart which I am raising funds for and I would humbly like to ask for your support. Since March, just like pretty much all touring musicians and performers I have not been able to work and so I am keenly aware of the difficulties that theatres and venues are suffering and similarly of the many, many musicians who are in dire financial trouble. Therefore I am hosting a 24 hour rocknrollathon at Cheltenham Playhouse starting at 10 am Wednesday 16 September to raise funds for both the Playhouse and Help Musicians UK (formerly the Musicians Benevolent Fund). My goal is to raise £10,000 to be split evenly between the two causes and to do this I shall be inviting my rock n roll musician friends to join me on the Playhouse stage to keep the music going for 24 hours.
"Donations can be made by clicking HERE but we're also giving you the chance to come and watch some of the event live, the first people to attend an event at the Playhouse six months to the day when they had to temporarily close. There are four 45-minute slots during the day and two 75-minute slots during the evening and only 18 seats are available, all socially distanced. Tickets for the daytime slots are £5 (£4.25 plus transaction fee) and for the evening slots £10 (£9.25 plus transaction fee). There are a handful of pairs and single seats but these must be booked online in advance."
