Paragon's Crackers!!

This December, we’re inviting you to get involved in some festive fun and nonsense by sending in your Paragon Crackers - clips of up to 30 seconds of you singing, playing music, telling a joke, dancing, or anything else you feel like doing on your own, with family or friends, while raising funds for Paragon! 

We’ll be releasing your Paragon Crackers on social media throughout the month of December to get everyone laughing, singing and dancing together, wherever you are in the world. The campaign will culminate in an online Paragon’s Crackers live-streaming fundraiser gig on 21st December, seeing out 2021 in style with new music and performances from Beat It, Mindful Drumming, Nith Riff, Resonate, Sonnet, Stride, Track, and Tune! Expect a night of fun, frolics and festivities where we’ll get together to celebrate another year of incredible creativity from everyone involved in Paragon. 

Every Donation Counts!

The Paragon’s Crackers campaign will help raise funds for much needed equipment for our new hybrid way of working, bringing people together in person and online. Working in this way enables us to reach people living in rural locations and those with complex support needs and mental health issues, ensuring everyone can still participate in our workshops, while we start to bring people back together again. We have been working in this way during 2021 as we have been determined to keep people connected, making music and dancing together! However, we desperately need funding to buy the equipment required to deliver these workshops, as more of our programmes transition to the hybrid model.

So, do a Cracker, send it in, and ask your family and friends to donate some dosh so that we can keep people dancing, singing and making music into 2022 and beyond! Look out for your Cracker on social media and the livestream event on 21st December!
