West End benefit to aid bushfire victims
Proof that the famous Aussie spirit is alive and well in the UK, the expatriate Australian entertainment community, and the stars of London’s West End will come together for a one-off benefit concert to raise money, awareness and hope for victims of the recent Australian bushfires and floods.
THE concert, entitled West End’s Sunday Best, is being held in response to the fires and flash floods which ravaged Australia in February this year, killing over 200 people and leaving several thousand homeless. All proceeds will go to the British Red Cross Australian Bushfires Appeal to assist in rebuilding the homes and livelihoods of these victims.
West End’s Sunday Best will feature cast members from some of the West End’s biggest shows including Oliver!, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert The Musical, Sister Act, La Clique, Dirty Dancing, The Sound Of Music, The Lion King, La Cage Aux Folles, Zorro and Jersey Boys.
Hosted by Australian actor, Simon Burke, who recently starred in The Sound of the Music, the concert will include guest appearances by Australian West End stars Jason Donovan, Philip Quast and Oliver!’s Tamsin Carroll, and antipodean artist and singer Rolf Harris.
Puppetry Of The Penis, vocal group The Flying Pickets, electric string quartet String Divas and Rat Pack’s Back will also feature in the line up.
The concert will be held on 29 March at 7pm at The Palace Theatre.
