Spectacular concerts for Children with Cancer UK

Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, Croydon, London CR9 1DG

Music stars Fleur East and Joe McElderry are to star in Bravery To The Bell, a spectacular series of five variety shows across the UK to raise awareness and fundraise for national children’s charity, Children with Cancer UK.

They will be joined by Britain’s Got Talent dance group Flawless, illusionist Marc Spelmann, The X Factor’s Lauren Platt, West End Aladdin star Matthew Croke, vocalist Emma King, Reading Community Gospel Choir and vocal harmony group Vadé, to perform the concerts and celebrate the release of a Children with Cancer UK fundraising charity single - Tomorrow Is A Better Day. The single is a celebratory nod to the journey children take throughout their fight against cancer, with the ringing of a symbolic bell at the end of treatment. The aim of the charity is to help more children with cancer ring the end of treatment bell.

The dates and venues for Bravery To The Bell are:
Saturday 7th September 2019: Manchester O2 Apollo with extra special guests Soul II Soul
Sunday 15th September 2019: Nottingham Royal Concert Hall
Sunday 22nd September 2019: Birmingham Symphony Hall
Sunday 29th September 2019: Liverpool M&S Bank Arena
Sunday 13th October 2019: LONDON DATE - Croydon Fairfield Halls

Children with Cancer UK is celebrating more than 30 years of raising and investing funds into vital specialist research to save children’s lives and keep families together. Bravery To The Bell is the perfect opportunity to bring families together to enjoy a line-up of some of the very best entertainment in the UK, while also supporting a leading children’s cancer charity.

Bravery To The Bell - staged during Cancer Awareness Month - is a two hour show of song, dance, comedy and magic... but the biggest stars in each show will be local children in remission who will get to ring a bell placed centre stage, in what will
surely be an amazing show-stopping moment. The end of treatment bell symbolises the joyful moment all children with cancer look forward to - completing their treatment and returning home to normal life with their families.

Tomorrow Is A Better Day is available now to download on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music, with all proceeds to be donated to Children with Cancer UK. Or download the free app Bravery To The Bell available now in the app store.

Bourne Media Group’s Suzanne Shaw and Laura Taylor, producers of Bravery To The Bell, are also launching a competition for members of the public to win tickets to join the cast on stage for the finale of the show to sing the charity single.

New Wimbledon Theatre & Studio
93 The Broadway, Wimbledon, SW19 1QG

The New Actors Company in association with New Wimbledon Theatre presents:


A  unique collaboration between The New Actors Company, New Wimbledon Theatre and ATG to reinvigorate the artistic identity of Studio at New Wimbledon Theatre.

The season includes:

Tues 27th August to Saturday 14th September 2019:
Breathing Corpses

by Laura Wade.
I hope you have a nice time. I don’t believe in God, really, which is a shame in this type of situation, but –
As Amy, a chambermaid who has the luck of regularly finding the recently deceased, wonders about the life of the dead occupant of a hotel room she was about to clean, we are invited to discover the circumstances that led up to the event in this cleverly constructed drama.
Earning Laura Wade the Most Promising Playwright award from the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards, Breathing Corpses is a gift for both the actors performing it and the audience watching it. This production will be the first professional London revival since its premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in 2005.
Tuesday to Friday at 7.45pm
Saturday at 2.45pm and 7.45pm

Tuesday 17th September to Saturday 5th October 2019:

by William Shakespeare.
Good sir, why do you start; and seem to fear
Things that do sound so fair?
Shakespeare’s classic tragedy will be the second offering in the season. The New Actors Company is very proud to be producing its first professional production of a play by Shakespeare. The piece needs little introduction except to say there will be no twist or slant in this production; no setting to explain away current affairs or the political climate of this time or any.
Tuesday to Friday at 7.45pm
Thursday and Saturday at 2.45pm and 7.45pm

Tuesday 22nd October to Saturday 9th November 2019:

by Justin Fleming.
How could I have known that you would come?
In 1838, poverty-stricken and on the run from creditors, Richard Wagner writes his first successful opera, Rienzi, which is performed at the Dresden Opera House in October 1842. In 1907, a 19-year-old Adolf Hitler watches a performance of Rienzi, which becomes a powerful obsession for the young, serious Austrian. When Adolf’s fleeting attempts at opera fail dismally, he embarks on his next adventure – to “save the German people” through political action.
How do two men derive inspiration from the same source – one, which leads to an extraordinary act of creation - the other, a murderous act of destruction?
Tuesday to Friday at 7.45pm
Thursday and Saturday at 2.45pm and 7.45pm

Friday 13th to Tuesday 24th December 2019:
The Night Before Christmas

by Anthony Neilson.
He’s an employee of an International Gift Distribution Agency.
It is the night before Christmas, and while children across the country dream hopefully of a fat man visiting them with presents, and parents lie awake completing re-mortgaging the house, a particularly festive intruder is discovered breaking into a lonely warehouse.
The clock starts ticking for this elf-like individual, as he tries to convince his captors of his Yuletide credentials, but is he all that he says he is? As snow falls gently over the city, and the wind carries sounds of festive cheer, Gary and Simon work to discover the truth. Is their captive truly a Seasonal pixie, a narcotic junkie or maybe both…

Troxy, 490 Commercial Road, London E1 0HX

After nine spectacular sold out shows raising over £300,000 for the Make A Difference Trust, WEST END BARES, theatre’s hottest annual fundraiser, returns for its 10th birthday with a one-off celebratory performance.

Tickets are on sale now.

Starting in 2010 at Café de Paris, WEST END BARES quickly grew in size and before long moved to the larger Novello Theatre, before eventually arriving at the Shaftesbury Theatre. For its 10th birthday WEST END BARES moves to Troxy for an almighty party to celebrate 10 stunning years of daring to bare.

This year’s theme will be announced later in the summer and follows nine years of incredible shows including West End Bares' unique take on the Olympics in 2012, Fashion in 2011, a Nude Dunnit murder mystery in 2014, reaching new heights of nearly naked pleasure in TAKE OFF in 2015 and turning the colourful characters of Oz upside down in Ruby Strippers in 2017. This year's anniversary show follows 2018's TOP OFF OF THE POPS which was hosted by Tom Allen and saw over 100 performers including Eva Noblezada, Laura Baldwin, Natasha Barnes, Luke Baker and Jon Robyns dare to bare, paying tribute to iconic music artists; the event raised over £60,000 for the Make a Difference Trust, a new record.

Special celebrity guests and performers for this year’s performance will be announced in due course. Previous celebrity supporters over the last ten years have included Graham Norton, John Barrowman, Eddie Izzard, Samantha Bond, Dame Judi Dench, Joe Lycett, Beverley Knight, Summer Strallen, Bianca del Rio, Michelle Visage, Adam Garcia, Dianne Pilkington, Mark Gatiss, Ian Hallard, Celinde Schoenmaker and Oliver Savile.

The event is based on the original concept ‘Broadway Bares’ by legendary Broadway and West End director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids.

Melanie Tranter, Chair of the Make A Difference Trust said, “West End Bares only happens because of the incredible generosity of the theatre community who give their time and talent so generously to make this incredible show possible. We are delighted to be celebrating ten years of West End Bares.”

Building on a legacy of over 30 years of fundraising by the theatre industry, The Make A Difference Trust raises funds for HIV and AIDS projects that build awareness and provide care, support and education in the United Kingdom and Sub-Saharan Africa. The Trust works with established partners to ensure projects have maximum impact and are sustainable. The Trust has distributed grants to support individuals experiencing hardship across the UK as well as grants to support projects with their UK and International partners, to relieve poverty, provide a safe environment and education for children and orphans affected by HIV and AIDS, and to secure the needs of the individual and the greater community as a whole For further information about the Make A Difference Trust please visit

Union Theatre, Old Union Arches, 229 Union Street, London SE1 0LR

Imagine your wife turned out not to be quite the woman you thought...

This brilliantly fresh, hilariously surreal new comedy is a madcap domestic farce about an aged couple who discover that their seemingly perfect marriage is not all it appears to be. As a turbulent past crashes in on them, long-buried secrets turn into imminent danger. But can love conquer all?

In a peaceful rural backwater, the irrepressible Daphne and decorated military man Tommy have been blissfully married for sixty-six idyllic years.

But recently something’s been troubling Tommy: a terrible secret.

For decades he’s been haunted by the memories of a black ops mission gone-wrong during the Korean War, and the fallout from one fatal night is finally catching up with him.

With marital bliss on a collision course with the fast-approaching shadows of the past—and with decades of untruths unravelling—perils loom and chaos reigns.

Meanwhile, Daphne’s got a secret of her own. Quite a big one…

Starring David Henry (The Madness of George III) and Clifford Hume (Misalliance).

Writer-director Edwin Ashcroft’s previous directorial credits include the UK premiere of Jon Fosse’s Over There, and the UK/London premiere of Nineteen Ninety-Two by Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee.

Tuesday to Friday at 7.30pm
Saturday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm
Sunday at 2.30pm

 The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama
Embassy Theatre, Eton Avenue, London, NW3 3HY


The languorous estancias of the Andes foothills where they grow cherries and make Malbec wines. Here too, as in Tsarist Russia and modern South Africa, the old ways of life are being ousted to make way for the new. Award-winning actor and director Janet Suzman directs Chekhov's last and greatest play, in a version proving it to be robustly universal.

First performed at the Young Vic Theatre, London on 10 October 2014.
Director - Janet Suzman
Designer - Simon Wells
Performed by MA Acting Classical Students

Before each performance, an extra play is performed:


The idea behind this play comes from the recent exposure by local historian Catherine Cortess of the discovery of babies bones and skeletons found in the grounds of a mother and baby home in Tuam – County Galway – Ireland. The home was built on the grounds of an old workhouse and ran from 1921-1961. My play is loosely based on these recent and historical events but is not a docu-drama of Tuam’s buried babies, though it draws inspiration from the story. Told through the eyes of Grace and her grandchildren, ‘Bones’ is a play about loss, the punishment of unmarried mothers and the legacy of demonsiation of women by Church and State, where the human and reproductive rights of women are undermined.
Tanika Gupta MBE, May 2019
Director - Martin Wylde
Designer - Sammy Dowson
Performed by MA Acting- Contemporary
This play was commissioned for MA Acting Contemporary. There will be scenes of an upsetting nature.

Wednesday 24th to Saturday 27th July 2019 at 7:30pm (Bones at 7pm)
Thursday 25th and Saturday 27th July 2019 at 2:30pm (Bones at 2pm)
