A charity cabaret show at the De La Warr Pavilion promises a celebratory evening of sizzling entertainment which should appeal to everyone.
That’s the aim of Town Mayor Cllr Frances Winterborn who has organised the event to raise funds for the charity close to her heart, Bexhill Caring Community.
The variety show will be held on Sunday October 13 from 7.30pm and tickets are already going like hot cakes.
It will include something for young and old, with a huge range of talented acts up on stage - such as Paul Roberts, singer with The Stranglers, Mad Fish Performing Arts, actor Luke Baxton, classical opera singer Judith Coleman, Acromax gymnasics groups, Renaissance Theatre Group, and comedy from Bobby Lee.
Cllr Winterborn said: “This is all about making people aware of the work that Bexhill Caring Community does because that is my charity of the year, also to let people know this is a community event. I didn’t want a Mayor’s Ball, I wanted something to say thank you to the people of Bexhill for supporting Bexhill Caring Community for nearly 50 years.”
She added: “This is my way of saying thank you to Bexhill Caring Community not only for helping people in the past but wanting to be there to help people in the present and in the future.”
The performers of Esspa (East Sussex School of Performing Arts) are known to local audiences having been established for 20 years and the select cabaret group is made up of senior students who have appeared in renowned musical performances at the De La Warr Pavilion.
Emma Burnett, who also leads Mad Fish singing studio, is a trained opera singer who has appeared in many productions including for the famous D’Oyly Carte company at the Savoy Theatre, and has sung with artists as diverse as Kevin Rowland of Dexy’s Midnight runners and St John Smith Square Choir, as well touring in Musicals Of the Millennium, Mathilda, Shrek, Evita, and Annie.
Nice & Easy are Adrian Grove and Darren Bennet who encompass all areas of entertainment including film, television, radio, stage and musical theatre, and are both stellar performers in their own right.
Adger Brown will act as compere for the night, as will Bobby Lee - both are seasoned performers in comedy.
