"It promises to be an uplifting and inspirational evening of fun, music, laughter and love"
A Celebration of the NHS

Adam Blanshay comments: "In recent years, the NHS has truly been a force to be reckoned with. It has done so much for all of us, and is an institution that we should all be proud of. It has battled through the pandemic and beyond, touching each and every single one of our lives, so I cannot say how truly excited I am to be creating this event in celebration of their historic 75th Anniversary.

He added: "In support of NHS Charities Together, with our participating performers, we are committed to staging this night of new work and old favourites, in what promises to be an uplifting and inspirational evening of fun, music, laughter and love."
