Clayton Hotel: City of London

The Felix Project

Milton Court Concert Hall





We are thrilled to have the support of Clayton Hotel, City of London. Their generous in-kind sponsorship of hotel rooms is vital for our team to deliver important work in the capital. 

“There is nothing more inspiring than seeing children do what they love most and are passionate about. London Youth Choirs gives an opportunity to reveal and showcase their individual abilities through beauty and creativity, bringing them a step closer to fulfill future dreams.”

Keerthy Sachavi | General Manager of Clayton Hotel City of London


We cannot succeed without the generosity of supporters like Convex Insurance, who provided match-funding for our Big Give Christmas Challenge this year, along with The Childhood Trust. Sponsors like Convex allow us to pursue our mission of offering equal opportunities to all of London’s young singers by subsidising our fees and providing free places to those who need them.

“We are proud to be partnering with LYC because we have seen the positive impact of their music teaching on the lives of young people across London.”

Paul Brand | CEO, Convex Insurance
