London Requiem Memorial Balloons
During the first performance of The London Requiem, we would like to create an avenue of remembrance with 200 white balloons, tethered to the ground and each carrying a dedication in memory of someone. We are asking you to help us by purchasing a balloon for a minimum donation of £10 in the name of someone you would like to remember. Their name and dates will be attached to a balloon and arranged as an avenue so the audience will have the opportunity to read the dedications.
50% of the funds raised from the sale of these balloons go towards building the Stairway to Heaven Memorial. This will be a permanent momument to those that lost their lives in the Bethnal Green Tube Disaster.
