The organisation behind West End Bares brings its West End Eurovision fundraiser back for its fourth year
The Make A Difference Trust, which brings together the British Entertainment industry to raise funds to support people living with HIV and AIDS, is holding its annual West End Eurovision night on Thursday 21 April 2011.
The fun late night fundraiser, which starts at 11.30pm at the Piccadilly Theatre, will see West End Shows competing against each other by singing original Eurovision Song Contest songs.
The theatre audience, and a panel of celebrity judges, will choose the winners. Previous winners of the event have included Wicked in 2008, Mamma Mia! in 2009 and Dirty Dancing in 2010. Last year’s judges were Graham Norton, host of the BBC’s Eurovision coverage, Sally Ann Triplett and Toby Anstis.
The show also features a special guest appearance by a past original Eurovision Song Contest entrant and promises a night of glitz and glamour.
David Pendlebury, Chairman of TheatreMAD, said: “Eurovision is such a camp and fun event, so it’s perfectly suited to a late night West End show and we are grateful to everyone for helping us to make it happen. It has the potential to raise such a lot of money for the projects we support and we are thrilled to present WEST END EUROVISION for the fourth year.”
