Help Fund A New Ritz Arts Centre For A New Generation!

ABOVE: Donate at least £30 and get one free ticket to see ex-Kinks members "The Kast Off Kinks" perform at the Hare & Hounds on 12 June 2016 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the The Kinks' Birmingham debut at King's Heath's old Ritz Ballroom

A new Ritz Arts Centre Charitable Incorporated Organisation is being registered with the Charity Commission and you can help us to try to raise money to create a New Ritz for a New Generation.

Everyone who pledges at least £15 gets a great reward. And the more you donate the better the reward!

The new Arts Centre will seek to celebrate the past, present and future musical and cultural talent of the local area.

We hope that it will include a multi function performance and rehearsal space capable of being used by a new generation for live music and other cultural activities and a Pop History Museum that commemorates the pivotal role that the old Ritz Ballroom in York Road played in Birminghams Pop Culture of the 1960's before it was destroyed by a fire in 2013. The ballroom witnessed some of the first performances of Birmingham groups like The Move, The Moody Blues, The Spencer Davis Group, Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and Black Sabbeth's Ozzy Osborne and Geezer Butler as well as the Birmingham debut of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Dusty Springfield and The Kinks!

We want the centre to become a major attraction that will add to the area's already vibrant live music scene.

You can help turn our dream turn into a reality by donating money at www.crowdpatch.co.uk/ritz/

The more you donate the better the reward you can claim.
