Tickets are selling fast for a light-hearted celebration of the Bard on Friday, November 1, in aid of the British Red Cross at Swanbourne House School.

Brush Up Your Shakespeare is being performed by Opera della Luna, an ensemble of versatile singers and comedians.

Pictured in an earlier production, the group create new and innovative versions of musical theatre, comic opera and operetta and tour them to venues all over the UK.

The evening will include songs by Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein, Mary Rodgers and Rodgers & Hart, as well as more classical settings by Sullivan, Korngold, Haydn, Thomas Arne, not to mention a little bit of Verdi and Berlioz, all on a Shakespearean theme.

The evening starts at 7.30pm and includes a drinks reception, interval with light supper brought to your table and a raffle afterwards.

Red Cross community fundraiser Sharon Cooper said: “Events like this are a really important source of fundraising for the Red Cross and will ensure we can continue to support vulnerable people in crisis. That’s why we’re encouraging as many people as possible to come along.”
