  • To get to the venue of our great musical performance, you can also pass through the Prague Castle complex (please count in extra time for security checks). The Castle now closes at 11 p. m., so you can use the same route after the concert at 10 p. m..
  • The event is organized in partnership with People In Need, a non-governmental non-profit organization that has been helping people at home and abroad for more than 25 years. It builds schools in Africa, develops new drinking water sources, and sets up healthcare centres while also aiding victims of war conflicts and untiringly championing human rights. Before, during and after the concert you can make a donation to its Better Schools for All project. Better Schools for All supports social services and educational programmes in the Czech Republic, especially in those areas where support from the government or other institutions has so far been inadequate.
