Two North Herts charities will be among those applauding when the curtain goes down on the 2015 Variety Express show in Letchworth.

This year’s series of concerts, with the theme of At The Movies, will run from Wednesday, October 28, to Saturday, October 31, at the group’s regular venue, the theatre at St Francis College in Broadway.

Evening performances start at 7.30pm and there’s also a Saturday matinee at 2pm.

The good causes which benefit are Hitchin-based Crossroads Care North Herts, which provides support for unpaid family carers and the people they care for, working with more than 600 carers in the area, and the Letchworth-based Hertfordshire Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre, which provides therapies for people affected by MS and other neurological and long term conditions.

At The Movies features songs from films through the decades in a unique mix of song, dance and comedy, guaranteed to provide a fabulous evening of entertainment, and a chance for audiences to sing-a-long.

Special guests this year include world champion jive dancers from Rodney’s Dance School.

Variety Express draws its members from Herts and Beds and has been staging shows for more than 30 years.
