The tender to buy closes 17th June. Buy a ticket to the online concert-movie 'To the Stars' or donate directly at GiveaLittle.



The Friends of St David's Trust invites you to experience the inaugural online concert-movie TO THE STARS and you’ll become a founding supporter of the St David's Centre for Music.
