The Dutch-German Groove Jazz band Appleton takes a bow with its latest programme to perhaps the greatest pop icons of all time: the Beatles. In refined and improvised jazz arrangements centred around a three-piece horn section and singer Barbara Drennan, the band presents its very own selection of Beatles classics without, however, diluting or straying too far from the originals.
This is a charity event, raising money in aid of the Helen Bamber Foundation.
The Helen Bamber Foundation (HBF) is a human rights charity based in London which was founded by Helen Bamber in 2005. Our specialist team of therapists, doctors and legal experts hold an international reputation for providing therapeutic care, medical consultation, legal protection and practical support to survivors of human rights violations.
HBF grew from the recognition that people who have suffered any kind of prolonged inter-personal violence – whether from human trafficking; war; community, domestic or gender-based violence – present with similar physical and psychological symptoms to torture survivors. The Foundation extends the model of care that Helen has developed over decades for people who suffered state torture to include a wider range of survivors who had previously lacked such specialist support.
‘The crucial lesson to master is how to hold, contain and sustain people who have suffered immense atrocity and loss.’ Helen Bamber
