An Evening of Community Entertainment at the Lyric Theatre on Saturday 9th February 2013, featuring the Best of Local Talent, and help raise funds for the restoration of one of Bridport’s historic community buildings.
The event was organised by new Community Group, the Barrackers, who first got together for a Jubilee Street party last year. Dave Bell, whose jazz band “Impromptu” will be performing, says “When rain almost stopped play, The Lyric opened the doors to save the day. Now we want to repay their generosity by raising funds for them, while at the same time enjoying some community spirit.”
The musical line-up, who are all performing for free, also features singer/keyboard duo Lauren Glover and Mike Ray, plus a new group -- the “Bucky Maybees” (a spin-off from those famous ukuleles, the Bucky Don’ts), Mitch Norman, duo Alex and Ian, and New Horizons.
A grand Valentines’ Raffle will offer romantic prizes.
The Lyric has recently become a Community Interest Company, in recognition of the valuable work that it is doing in supporting people in the community to be creative via the performing arts. Any donations given go towards the upkeep of the building plus supporting many of the activities that happen throughout the year.
