The Go-Between
A Fundraising Performance to support the Armed Forces Fund

27th September 2016

Go-Between

On Wednesday 27th September, we hosted a fantastic evening at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue to watch Michael Crawford – in the highly acclaimed new British musical The Go-Between.
 
This special performance was raising money for The Armed Forces Fund with a percentage of each ticket sold being donated to the Fund and also with a retiring collection.
 
The audience were deeply moved by a beautiful and touching tale of a young boy visiting a school friend’s family during the long hot summer of 1900 – with Michael Crawford playing the same character as a much older man.  With superb music, singing and acting – we all enjoyed a wonderful evening, raising money for such an important cause. Soldiers from The Grenadier, Coldstream and Scots Guards attended and helped with the retiring collection and some guests enjoyed after-show drinks with Michael Crawford and supporting cast.
 
We are very grateful to Mr Crawford and company of The Go-Between, the Apollo Theatre and their staff, as well as Mr Crawford’s family for all their support and help to make this such an memorable evening.
