With Christmas of 2014 being close upon us members, both old and new, of all units of the Knights Academy of Music and Performing Arts have been out and about both promoting the organisation and raising monies to help us further our offering of a 21st Century performing arts education.
The organisation has received over £2,580 in donations by participating in the festivities, with over £800 being raised by No Limit Street Band, which contains a high proportion of its performers from the Knights Academy’s Alumni.
The organisation would like to thank everyone that has made donations for our performances, and we look forward to seeing you at future events over the coming years.
