Since 2003, the Extreme Cellists have taken musical performances to new heights, and depths, by giving performances in numerous extreme locations. Many of these have been part of challenges to raise money for charities.

In July/August 2018 we completed our latest challenge - the Great War Composers and Poets tour, which saw us visit and play at battlefields and memorials in France and Belgium, where famous composers and poets had fought during World War I, which finished a century ago. More information about this can be found in our Blog.

Our most recent major fundraiser was in summer 2016, when we completed the Pier Pressure challenge - in which we played on all 58 surviving seaside piers in Great Britain in the space of 14 days, to raise money for two charities - Alzheimer's Society, and CHICKS.
