Unique Christmas Gifts in the Mercury Musicals Auction!

Ellen Burgin2

How much are you missing live performance? What would you give to walk into a theatre bursting with excitement over the next generation of new musicals?  

We know that performances will return, but while we wait there are new musicals to be written, tried out and nurtured.

MMD and MTN exist to ensure vibrant, original new British musical theatre happens and thrives. Together MMD and MTN provide a year-round programme of development opportunities from masterclasses to residencies to events, including the BEAM showcase and the UK Musical Theatre Conference. We are partially funded by Arts Council England but we couldn’t do any of this development work without kind individual donations from people like you, who love musicals, who write musicals, who can’t wait to discover, or create, the next SIX or Everybody's Talking about Jamie

It all starts with supporting new writers to create their best possible work, so please play your part, join the fun, get involved and bid below. All money raised will go directly towards helping our MMD and MTN members to write, develop, create, produce and promote the best new musicals with a focus on BEAM2021.

MMD & MTN have brought together a fantastic array of items suited to the times for you to bid on, from professional development with the best in the sector to unique musical theatre opportunities and bottles of bubbly. You might want to bid on these items for yourself or as a festive gift, or perhaps you want to offer encouragement to an aspiring writer?

We’ve put the ‘retail’ value below each item, but don’t let this constrain you! Likewise, feel free to bid whatever you can as every pound will go towards supporting artists.

Bidding will close at midnight on Sunday 20th December 2020.

Lots include fine French champagne, professional development and mentoring opportunities, chances for industry legends Stiles and Drewe to critique a song you've written and unique shows on vinyl!
