About Us

Music for Mortimer is founded by a local classical guitarist, Nick Carter (ALCM).

It’s aims are performing, collaborating with others and event management.

Our events are non profit with proceeds to a relevant charity.

Our inaugural event was “Mortimer presents Kingsclere Guitar Society” (KGS) in November 2016.  It featured a mix of popular and classical with guests including teenage soprano vocalist Juliette Ashman. The show raised £158 for St Michael’s Hospice, in memory of Tim Gilson who ran KGS until his death in 2015.

In April 2017 we ran the acclaimed “A Pirate’s Tale – the real Boats that Rocked”.  This came about throught our passion for “pirate” radio and chance discovery that a key member of 1960s pirate Radio London (Big L) – Richard Swainson – lived up the road (literally).  This event raised £558 (£554.61 rounded to Radio Caroline’s frequency) for Prostate Cancer UK.
