The troupe behind the popular Twelfth Night performance along Bankside every January are fundraising to keep it going.
A festival, to mark the end of Christmas and the wassailing of the apple trees to wake them from their slumber, is a staple of English customs, and the Lions Part performs an urban rendition each year.
The Lions Part is a theatre company made up of 7 performers who collaborate to create seasonal festivals, plays and theatre pieces with a fusion of stories, playtexts, music, customs and heritage.
In addition to the Twelfth Night in January, they also conclude the year with the October Plenty, also at Bankside.
The Lions part receives no public funding and relies on donations and good will.
Both festivals are free, so there is now a donations page to help support the troupe. You can support them here, or read more about them here.
The next Twelfth Night festival is due to take place on Sunday 8th Jan 2017.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.
