Geraldine Connor, our namesake, was a friend to many, an inspiration to all and a force to be reckoned with on many occasions.

This year marks the 65th birthday of Geraldine (22nd March 1952), the 10-year anniversary of Carnival Messiah at Harewood House (14th-30th September 2007) and the 5th year of the Geraldine Connor Foundation (18th December 2012).

It’s going to be a huge year of celebration and we have many surprises planned. We’d like to start our celebrations by inviting you to join us in celebrating the life and work of Geraldine Connor.

So, send us your thoughts, love, photos, videos or original art, be it a poem or a painting. Then join us online on the 22nd March to send a big shout out up to the sky to show that we are #RememberingGeraldine
