International Children's Games Gala

Friday 17 February at 7:30pm

Albany Young Producers brings together some of the top young talent from across the City and beyond to support young athletes going to the International Children's Games.

Make no mistake, some of these young performers will become well-known and will develop glittering careers. This is your chance to see them perform live, at this early stage in their development, before you see them on the TV.

And it's all in a great cause.

Can you help us in other ways?
We have written to all the athletes at their last known address, but many will have moved on. Do you know anybody who took part in the games? We plan to display memorabilia from the games over the years – athletes are asked to contact Rebecca Finley, Albany Young Producers – [email protected]

Would you like to sponsor the event?
Would you like to get your name into the souvenir programme as a sponsor, with or without an advert? Again, all money raised will go to the Fund. Please contact Rebecca for more information.

The Background

Every year since 1997, Coventry has sent a team of young athletes to The International Children’s Games. The cost of sending the Coventry team has always been covered through generous sponsorship by individuals and organisations. Over the years, the Games’ fund has become depleted.

The International Children's Games is a globally established organisation which give the opportunity for young athletes from all around the world to take part in a huge Olympic style sports event. It encourages cultural awareness and global peace as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle for all participants.

This spectacular Gala will raise funds to help send this year’s team to Kaunas in Lithuania, and to also build up the reserves to help in future years.

The Gala is being organised by Albany Young Producers, a new group of 16 to 25 year old volunteers based at the theatre. The Gala features talented young performers from the local area – young performers raising money for young athletes, organised by young producers. Brilliant!
