Dear Peter – I am asking for your help!
Leading choir Coro Nuovo are performing at St Andrew’s Church, Burgess Hill on 14th July 2018. An American themed evening celebrating music from that rich heritage both Early and Musical Theatre. The choir is led by international tenor, Andrew Rees who himself has just got back from Carnegie Hall singing with Jonas Kaufman. We are so lucky to have international performers living in Sussex who are prepared to give time to local activities.
In addition to the choral part of the concert we also have £1,000 prize money (bursary) to give away to a Sussex Young Musician. This will be the 3rd year we have been running the event and the first time in Burgess Hill. We have 4 stunning young musicians both voice and instrument all with a Sussex connection who will be competing on that evening in front of a panel of judges.
We are looking for sponsorship! We can do this via an advertisement in the concert programme with £50 for a half size A5 or £100 for a full A5. This is enormously helpful to us – we do get the programmes printed by P&S Gallagher who are kind enough to sponsor that element. We are completely non for profit and rely on sponsorship and donation. It means we can help these young musicians with funding and travel costs getting to the competition etc. With music and creative arts being marginalised in schools with funding this is one way of ensuring that music is part of our community and to be enjoyed by young and old and ensuring it’s importance for our culture.
Please help by advertising this and asking if any local business might be able to help with a programme advertisement.

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
