The Queille Trust

The Queille Trust is a registered UK Charity. Its principal purpose is to advance education of the public in the performing arts and to support the careers of young or emerging performers. The Trust provides some grants in support of this aim but its principal focus has been the sponsorship, promotion and organisation of the Queille Festival. This is a biannual festival of music and drama held at the Château de Queille in south west France and by doing so to support create an audience and stage for the artists and an ambience for them to find opportunity for recognition and commissions.

From time to time the trustees will also endorse direct support to performing arts schools and ensembles as well as grants to individuals or organisations in other areas of activity, which are consistent with the Trust's objects as defined in its Trust Deed.

The Trust raises its funding from donations and gifts of shares. Donations have been received in general support of the Trust as well as in connection with the sale of tickets to the Queille Festival. The most recent Annual Report & Accounts of the Queille Trust can be seen here.
