Why can’t we have Graham Norton’s job?
It was a Knight like no other — Sorry — EXCALIBARE brought the house down with an incredible show.
Broadcaster Graham Norton, Samantha Bond, Michelle Visage and David Bedella joined a host of exceedingly talented performers on stage at the Novello Theatre last night for the seventh annual West End Bares, raising money for the most important of causes.
West End Bares supports The Make A Difference Trust, a UK based charity with a vision of a world free from HIV and AIDS. Building on the legacy of 25 years of fundraising by the Theatre industry, they continue to make the vision a reality having distributed over £1.6 million in grants to support individuals experiencing hardship across the UK as well as over £1million to support projects with their UK and international partners.
Now in its seventh year, this annual event – based on the original concept Broadway Bares by legendary Broadway and West End director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell- combines the naughtiness of burlesque along with the razzle dazzle of the West End featuring a variety of performers currently appearing in West End and touring productions.
Needless to say last night blew the audience away, but if you weren’t lucky enough to be at the Novello, here’s a sneaky look at some of the festivities.
