The GCF Summer Gala 2014 is a showcase of performance from some of the extraordinary artists and exciting young performers we are currently working with. Some of the performers this evening worked with Geraldine on Carnival Messiah either as artists or as young performers who have since become professional practitioners. We are also joined by some of our partner organisations who we are delighted to be collaborating with.

Performers tonight include: Our Emcee, Jojo Kelly; New World Steel Orchestra & Melvin Zakers; Christella Litras & Caution Collective; GCF Master Class participants; Kala Sangam; Leeds Youth Authors; Khadijah Ibrahiim;  Joe Williams; Chicken Shop Shakespeare; Leroy Johnson & Sons of Cedar; Phoenix Dance Theatre.

This performance is dedicated to our friend Leigh Exley, a member of the Carnival Messiah family who sadly passed away this year.

This event is supported by the Emerald Foundation, Aspire-i and the Harewood House Trust.

With special thanks to the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
