Amnesty celebrates 50th anniversary

This organization was founded in London on 28 May 1961 and has been drawing attention to human rights abuses around the world ever since.

Amnesty has the longest history and broadest name recognition and is believed by many to set the standards for the movement as a whole.

In celebration of Amnesty International’s 50 years of human rights activism, a summer fundraising concert titled “Freedom is Coming” will take place and commemorate the efforts of rights activists around the world.

“For 50 years Amnesty International has been making a big noise about human rights abuses,” said Chairman of Amnesty International UK Tom Hedley. “Now it’s time for the Big Noise to return the favour.”

The concert will feature the world renowned Big Noise Chorus — a 200 plus choir group that has raised over £10,000 for various charities and performs rock, pop, soul and world music.

“We have something for virtually all musical tastes,” said Choir Director Colin Rea. “It promises to be a hugely uplifting night for the whole family and all proceeds go to such a wonderful cause.”

The event will host almost 400 performers and feature Stagecoach Theatre Arts and dance troupe — the longest running and most successful performing arts school network in the world — as well as a rock band and string quartet from Big Noise.

The concert will take place at the Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay on 23 July. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and tickets cost £9.50 no concessions.
