The Richard Stoker Trust was registered in April 2022 to promote the music of the English composer Richard Stoker (1938-2021), and to safeguard the archive of his music, artworks and other items.

Funding is available to musicians, organisations, researchers and writers who include Richard Stoker’s music in their work.

Of particular interest are live performances and recordings, music teaching (vocal and instrumental), and research by writers and academics. Each application for funding will be considered on its own merits. Please get in touch via our contact page.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Richard’s wife, Gill Stoker, the driving force behind the establishment of the Richard Stoker Trust. Gill died on 13th February, nine months after being diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour. You can read a tribute here. Gill’s funeral will be held at 2pm on Monday 18th March at Hither Green Crematorium. Everyone is welcome, but no flowers please. If you’d like to make a donation to St Christopher’s Hospice in Gill’s memory, you can do so here. The work of the Trust will continue.
