British Youth Opera is very pleased to report that it will remain an Arts Council NPO (National Portfolio Organisation) for the period 2018-2022.
Sincere thanks to all those individuals who have made this possible. With strong leadership from our President and Vice-Presidents and our tireless Board, we have a wonderful, hard working, dedicated staff team who – along with the hugely talented production and workshop teams we put together every Easter and Summer – have ensured that BYO is in a very good place.
Arts Council support is crucial. Not only is it valuable in its own right, but it also signals to potential funders and supporters that we have succeeded through their extremely rigorous application process at a time when there is more call then ever upon their limited resources.
