Kirstie Tancock will team up with Beauty Unseen, a new charity, and eight other role models from across the South West ahead of the performance on Saturday, October 1.

A Honiton woman, who has undergone a double lung transplant, has been chosen to talk about her story in a live stage show.

Kirstie Tancock will team up with Beauty Unseen, a new charity, and eight other role models from across the South West ahead of the performance on Saturday, October 1.

The show, at the Fashion Pavilion at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway, near Bristol, from 6pm and 8pm, will utilise all forms of the creative arts, fashion, music, dance and multimedia to challenge existing stereotypes and perceptions of the UK public.

Kirstie has decided to raise awareness for the work of Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, which saved her life. Each role model highlights a real-life story overcoming a different issue.
