This unique event, the first of its kind in Canterbury, is being organised by the collaboration of The Rotaract Club of Canterbury and St Edmunds School Interact Club, with all proceeds from ticket sales going to the selected charies.

Vice-President of Canterbury Rotaract and Director of the show, Becky-Anne Gladwin, said We are really excited about this concert. Its wonderful to have such a variety of talented acts all performing at the same event. Equally I am delighted that everyone involved has been able to voluntarily offer their services to such a worthy cause, so that all the money we raise will go directly to the nominated charities.

The Rotaract Club of Canterbury comprises members from University of Kent and Christ Church University, as well as members from the local community and the St Edmunds Interact Club is made up of pupils from the senior school at St Edmunds School Canterbury; the clubs are part of Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland.
