Intended Use/Recipients: dancers and musicians aged 15 - 30 with financial need at English Dance Week
The Redgate Fund was established in memory of Peter Redgate, a dancer and musician from London and Toronto, Ontario, who died in 1999. Peter was born in England, and danced on several morris and country dance teams there before immigrating to Canada in 1958. He was an active dancer and musician in both London and Toronto; because of his skill and grace as both a dancer and musician, he was much in demand by English country dance groups and morris teams. The Fund provides scholarships to English Dance Week at Pinewoods, giving particular preference to applicants between the ages of 18-30.
