On Sunday 15th December 2013 at The Old Regent Ballroom in Stanford Le Hope, Essex, we hosted our first ever Christmas Concert, which sold out quickly!
For one night only our talented singing group performed Christmas songs and a medley of numbers from popular musical productions. The audience enjoyed singing along and joined in with an active rendition of the Twelve Day Of Christmas!
The concert was concluded with a surprise visit from Santa who gave out gifts to the children. In the evening, there was gala of live music from popular function band Carbon Copy, plus dancing and a buffet.
Lennox Productions is a group of volunteers who bring their talents together to put on annual musical theatre productions to raise funds and awareness for Lennox Children's Cancer Fund.
Since 2007, they have produced many well known musical hit shows at the 500 seater Queen's Theatre, in Hornchurch including Oliver!, Barnum, Annie, The King & I, Beauty and the Beast and most recently Fiddler on the Roof. Although these shows have been described a 'worthy of the West End', they are all performed by an amateur cast made up of volunteers from the local community. The dedicated production team also volunteer their time to ensure a quality performance every time and boy do they pull it off!
As always these shows are all in the name of charity and although profits from ticket and programme sales all help us to achieve our goals as a charity, the show also provides a major advertising boost for us too.
