We hope you'll enjoy our latest SONGHAVEN AT HOME concert film featuring footage from the Spring-themed concert we hosted in May last year.

Songhaven previously relied largely on audience donations and venue partnerships to cover our running costs. As we are unable to hold public events, we very grateful to those who have assisted us with additional funding to launch SONGHAVEN AT HOME. In particular, Camden Giving's COVID19 Charity Fund and HS2 Fund, the Wesleyan Foundation, and private donors including Yvonne and Rachel. A heartfelt thank you for your generosity and belief in Songhaven. We are so grateful for your support.
These bespoke performances are bringing so much joy to people during lockdown! A huge thank you to all the amazing artists who have volunteered to fulfil song requests.
