West End debut.

Just this morning, an old friend from Bristol – Richard Hope Hawkins – reminded me of an event which saw me making my West End debut – introducing the Great Western Barbershop Chorus from Bristol on the stage of London’s Theatre Royal in Drury Lane.

Richard co-organised a Parkinson’s Disease benefit concert in 1989 honouring the late Terry Thomas – who sadly died from the disease – and also starring the likes of Russ Conway, Phil Collins and Eartha Kitt.

He has just chanced upon a video he made of the event – as reported by me on HTV West’s What’s On slot!

Thought l would share it. Thanks for the memory Richard.
