The sold-out show took placed in March 2023 at Avon Valley Academy and featured students from 15-year-old Alfie’s school, Starcast Performing Arts School, perform songs from popular musicals including Grease, Hamilton and The Greatest Showman, to name but a few.

What a fantastic fundraising event! Thank you so much to Lisa and Alfie for supporting our charity in such a brilliant way. We couldn’t be there for local life limited and life threatened children, young adults and their families without the help of our supporters, so I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved at Starcast Performing Arts School for your truly inspiring support.
