Never Give Up

11 June @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Music Durham and RTProjects are proud to present this year’s Never Give Up concert, showcasing local and student music talent on the same stage all in aid of supporting RTProjects’ vital work! We invite the local Durham community to come enjoy an evening’s entertainment alongside students in a celebration of music and life.

RTProject’s goal is to help people who are enduring poor mental health to live a full life. They work alongside people affected by depression, anxiety and those at risk of suicide and enable people to develop emotional resilience and coping strategies and, when ready, to embark upon a personal journey towards recovery.

We are very excited to be hosting this concert at the Tent on the Racecourse, a brand new performing arts venue which will be running many events across June. The concert will be ran as a covid-safe event, with marshalls in place to ensure social distancing measures are kept to so you can enjoy the entertainment in safety! Masks should be worn but can be removed for drinking (drinks will be available to order and food trucks will be available outside of the Tent).

Tickets are available until Tuesday 8th June and there will be no walk-ins on the day! The cost is  £5 but we would ask that you consider donating further if you are in the position to do so, to help support RTProjects further – you can do this here.
If possible, please try to buy in groups of up to 6 (mixed households are allowed).
Please remember to fill in this Microsoft Form to provide us with details of all attendees on your table – the form can be found here.

We would also encourage audience members to use an LFT test before attending the event.
Students will be required to show evidence of two negative LFT test result (email receipt from a university test site) from 3-4 days before the event. We strongly recommend that any non-student audience members also have tests before attending.
