Big Give Christmas Challenge: One Gift, Twice the Impact

From 12pm on Tuesday 28 November to 12pm on Tuesday 5 December, we will be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, raising money for RCM Scholarships.

Every pound you donate through the Big Give will be matched, doubling the impact of your support on RCM Scholarships and unlocking opportunities for talented musicians from all backgrounds to access world-class music education.

Every gift of every size will make a difference to the world’s greatest young musicians. There has never been a better time to support the RCM and the Future of Music.
