1st Birthday Party

Our 1st Birthday Party on 18th May 2014 was a wonderful celebration of all that we'd accomplished in our inaugural year. 

The night was hosted by Ian McKellen and featuring a revue directed by Sean Mathias with performers Clarke Peters, Will Young, Celia Imrie, Harry Enfield and Lesley Manville (see the full line up at the bottom of this page). Guests included Benedict Cumberbatch, Alan Rickman, Jonathan Miller and Tamzin Outhwaite.
