Join us for a very special livestream on Sunday 19th July 2020 from folk duo Henderson:Hooper. Performing from our home to yours, we will play a mix of our own tunes, some by fiddler friends, and one or two trad tunes too. We will play for around an hour.

There is no charge for the concert, but if you would like to make a donation to Yellow Submarine, we would love this concert to be a fundraiser for this wonderful Oxfordshire charity. Yellow Submarine has been a mainstay for us as a family during lockdown, providing, amongst other things, wonderful live streams on Facebook, which our daughter Rose has been able to get involved with. She has loved sending in her news in the form of videos and photos every week and watching it being shared on Facebook Live, and this has motivated her to run, jump and do all sorts of things she wants to share with fellow members of Yellow Submarine. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Yellow Submarine by giving a concert for them.

About Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine is an award-winning Oxfordshire charity that believes people with learning disabilities and autism deserve to live life to the full. They tackle the problem that many people with learning disabilities leave school with limited life skills and as a result poor life chances. This often leads to isolation and being marginalised. Their projects start working with young people in community settings from the age of 11 onwards, to build their social skills, confidence, independence and ultimately their employability. At the same time they are supporting families and carers with respite.

They’re unusual in the world of charities (and local authorities) in that with the same team of staff they assist young people on their journey through childhood into adulthood. This allows them, often over many years, to gain both trust and a real insight as to how best to create a person-centred plan to support each individual.
