In 2017 The Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition lost one of its most loyal and hardworking volunteers, John Carter. In recognition of his contribution to the development of the competition, our contestant’s bursary fund has been renamed ‘The Carter Fund’ in his memory. If you would like to donate to the fund, which supports contestants in financial hardship, please complete the form below.
