Treat yourself to the best of The West End

Feast on performances by some of the UK’s best vocalists at Trinity Theatre’s first fundraising gala event of the year on Sunday, June 4, says Michelle Wood

An integral part of the Tunbridge Wells arts community, the Trinity Theatre is still standing strong after several difficult years of funding challenges in the wake of Covid. The theatre wholly relies on ticket sales, café takings, sponsorships and donations.

In support of this aim, ‘West End Unplugged’ will be the first fundraising gala event of the year. In typically dramatic fashion, it is set to impress as six accomplished performers from London’s West End will put on an exceptional evening comprising anecdotes and songs from various shows.

In addition, there will be a West End-themed raffle up for grabs. Compering the evening will be Hywel Dowsell, who has starred in West End productions of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Joseph and his Technicoloured Dream Coat’, and a range of other BBC and theatre-based productions.

Also performing on the evening will be Adam Robert Lewis. He made his professional debut in ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, and has starred in ‘Les Misérables’, ‘Passion’, and film and television hits like ‘Dream Hackers’, ‘The Crown’, ‘The Magical World of Miracles’ and ‘White Island’. Acclaimed performer Jenna Boyd was in the original West End cast of ‘Come from Away’, and starred in ‘Love on the Links’, ‘Wind in the Willows’, ‘The Sound of Music’ and ‘Les Misérables’. She has also acted in hit television shows ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Doctors’, ‘Casualty’, ‘Heartbeat’, ‘The Tracey Ullman Show’, and the film of ‘Les Misérables’. Manon Taris has worked across Europe, appearing in shows such as ‘Les Misérables’, ‘Sister Act’ and Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Sam Lupton has numerous West End credits to his name, such as ‘Wicked’, ‘The Ladykillers’ and ‘A Streetcar named Desire’. He has also appeared on both radio and on television and is a magician and escape room creator. Malcom Forbes-Peckham enjoys a varied career as a musical director and pianist in both the theatre and concert performance worlds. He is currently Musical Director for ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ on the West End, but has worked on a host of notable productions, including ‘The King and I’, ‘An American in Paris’, ‘The Wind in the Willows’, and the film ‘London Road’. He is also the Assistant Conductor of the Amadeus Orchestra and Mozart Symphony Orchestra. When these six talented performers get together, expect a special evening of magic.
