A better charity would be the Child Migrants Trust for the thousands of orphaned children forcibly shipped out to Australia for farm fodder by the British Government, during the 20th c. (and before).

I don't know about outside of the folk scene but plenty of publicity within it down here including a two page interview in Folk London. Where are you located?

I'm located in London. What is Folk London? Nothing in (free) Timeout London either. Metro? Evening Standard? Community radio stations? Southbank programme? Only heard about the show on Mudcat - but not how to get tickets. Is there a list of venues anywhere; and ticket prices? Website?

See the Cecil Sharp House event is £22 for a 2 hour show - less if there's a mid-show interval. That's pricey.

The Cecil Sharp ticket page is :
https://uk.patronbase.com/_CecilSharpHouse/Productions/21/Performances




Ents24 seems to be used quite a bit by the busier bands.
I use their 'alerts'/'track' button and I don't get bothered with any extra spammy stuff.

get alerts for a venue e.g.
https://www.ents24.com/london-events/cecil-sharp-house 
or get alerts for an artist e.g.
https://www.ents24.com/uk/tour-dates/the-young-uns 
or see 'folk' in London

When I see things like "Award-winning record producer Andy Bell will be the sound engineer for the production" I start to worry whether it will be deafeningly loud. I had to walk out of one production last year in (of all places!) the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse: a representation of a Jacobean theatre, with lighting only by candles, yet amplified sound.

The trick is to set record level at no more than 50% at the start to allow for such inevitable increases in volume through the gig, that normally avoids any overloading of the recorder's mic preamps, which sounds terrible when using a modern digital recorder!

re: charities
They seem to have some contacts with local refugee support groups. Maybe they'll have some sort of exit collection.
There are some links here on their "Parallel Lives" page :

Matthew Crampton (the narrator) has written a book and show Human Cargo.
Info and interesting short video about it here

"I think it would be a wonderful idea if any money made from Transports was donated to The Samaritans, if that happens already, please accept my apologies."

I wonder if, in fact, it will make any money, after all the performers must be paid and such a project will require not an inconsiderable amount of rehearsal time, to say nothing of venue hire, agents' fees, and I would imagine a lawyer and accountant are needed for contractual and financial matters.

One can always ask one of the performers on the merch table. I got the impression from Paul Sartin that a recording will be done, and the one rehearsal recording aired on the Folk Show sounded very good indeed - despite my dear wife insisting that the ladies should have been higher in the mix!!!

Front Row: Jackie, The Transports, TS Eliot Prize, 'Yellowface' row

The Transports is a ballad opera telling the true story of two convicts who fell in love in prison as they were waiting to be sent on the First Fleet to Australia. They had a child, were cruelly separated, but thanks to a kind gaoler, were eventually united. It was recorded in 1977 by giants of the folk world - June Tabor, Nic Jones, Martin Carthy, Norma Waterson. 40 years on a new generation of folk stars - Nancy Kerr, Faustus, the Young'Uns - are touring their new production. Samira meets them as they rehearse and finds The Transports has plenty to say about exile and migration today.
