Royal British Legion fundraiser
More Miller Magic comes to the White Rock Theatre on March 26 at 2.30pm courtesy of Terry Steel's Astor Big Band which is the official touring band for the Royal British Legion.
This show will include a host of Glenn Miller’s hits, plus big band classics from Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters, and songs from West End musicals.
The line-up also features the Astor Big Band’s vocal group and the Strictly Miller dancers. All profits from the show go to the Poppy Appeal.
A spokesman said: “Our primary focus this year is on the Royal British Legion’s work supporting Post Traumatic Stress Disorder sufferers (who receive little or no extra government-based funding), and the number of sufferers who find it difficult to live and work in the community far exceeds the numbers returning with severe physical disabilities.
For example, in Afghanistan there were 474 killed, 571 amputees but MOD puts a figure on PTSD suffered in excess of 3,100. Then add Iraq and Falklands and you have over 8,000.” Book on 01424 462288 or www.whiterocktheatre.org.uk.
