Guests were treated to a sample of Night at the Musicals on Wednesday (8 February) at the launch event for the Midsummer Ball 2017.
Held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel and sponsored by Skerritts, the 2017 annual charity Ball is supporting the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, and Sussex-based charities Action Medical Research, Chailey Heritage Foundation, Chestnut Tree House and The Starr Trust, who are jointly all ‘Helping Young People in Sussex’.
Hosted by David Hill from the E3 Group, the Ball will be inspired by the razzamatazz and jazz of the theatre. And in case you were wondering, yes – there is a dance-off challenge again this year!
The six local personalities brave enough to take on the challenge to perfect a musical-style song and dance all in the name of charity, choreographed by the E3 Group.
They are; Antony Nelson representing Action Medical Research, Keris Lea for Chailey Heritage Foundation, Marcella Whittingdale and Matt Turner on behalf of Chestnut Tree House and finally Robin Cousins and Robb Starr for The Starr Trust.
The Midsummer Ball raised over £43,000 last year to help the young people of Sussex and organisers are hoping to match this again.
Tickets are £85 per person or £795 for a table of 10. To book please contact Nicky Willard on 01273 775432, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
