Big concert in Sidmouth marks 40th anniversary
PUBLISHED: 18:40 12 May 2016
The Lions Club of Sidmouth is putting on a special 40th Anniversary Celebration Concert at 8pm this Saturday (May 14), at the Manor Pavilion Theatre.
This will be a gala evening of music and song from stage and screen in celebration of four decades of the club’s existence and its services to the community.
Bubbly and canapés will be served from 7pm and the audience is being invited to ‘dress up’ for the occasion, but ‘black tie’ is entirely optional.
The programme for the concert has been created by superb local songbird Vicki Angus Campbell (pictured), who has worked with Sidmouth Musical Comedy Society and played lead roles in Oklahoma, Camelot, South Pacific, Irene, Annie, The King and I and Cinderella. She has also been in many shows with Sidmouth Musical Theatre.
Vicki has enlisted the support of other talented singers and musicians - most of whom have performed at the Lions club’s charity concerts during the past decade, or are youngsters who have benefited from its sponsorship.
Performers include: Catherine Moore; Val Howels; John Burgoyne; Oscar Hammond; Samuel Neal; Wally Cotgrave; regular music director Dorothy Worthington (piano/keyboard); Ruth James (violin); Jenny Campbell (wind instruments); Niki Angus Campbell (dancer); Leigh Steedman (actor); and Tony Hill (lighting designer).
The songs and music are from great stage shows and films.
Proceeds will go to the Lions Club of Sidmouth’s community service and charity activities.
Tickets (£12 including pre-show canapés and bubbly) are available from the theatre box office on 01395 514413.
