Local charity The Little Hands & Art (formerly known as Hands around the World) was born after the tsunami in 2004 which struck Thailand. The charity raised money for children caught up in it and who lost everything. The charity bought a mobile art unit which provided art therapy for distressed children and continues to help other children from deprived areas or in stressful situations. The charity continues to provide food and medicines for poor families and supports an orphanage. More information: http://bit.ly/2ikZEa6
Guestling-Bradshaw C.E Primary School Junior Choir has performed at concerts and events in Hastings, performed at Hastings Music Festival and was runner-up in the 1066 Choir Competition last year.
For 15 years, Scott Ciscon, Paul Martin and Jem Sharples have entertained audiences throughout the world. Using talents honed in their previous solo careers in opera and theatre, they bring their own blend of wit, charm and vocal arrangements to their performances. Alan Titchmarsh OBE said “21st century tenors, great fun, great voices and a great evening.” Tenors Unlimited sang at the memorial service for football legend Sir Bobby Robson and sang live at Wembley Stadium at the FA Cup final.
Jem Sharples from Tenors Unlimited says “We perform a wide repertoire of all music so there is sure to be something for everyone.”
