We were very lucky to have been invited to perform at the Gala Night celebrating the re-opening of the Mayflower Theatre after the theatre has been through a £7.5 million pound revamp.
West End and Broadway star Earl Carpenter hosted the event which included performances from the Welsh National Opera, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Joe McElderry, Jacqueline Hughes (who has played Elphaba in Wicked), Bobby Davro, Mayflower Summer Youth Project, Barely Methodical Dance, Southampton Music Hub’s Big Sing and us! We joined forces with SingForce (a workplace choir business founded by our leader Dan) to take part in the show.
Michael Ockwell, Chief Executive of Mayflower Theatre, said: “This is without doubt the most significant refurbishment project that the theatre has seen in the last three decades and we were thrilled to lift the curtains on the new look tonight. For us, this project is very much about ensuring Mayflower Theatre remains best in class not just for now, but long into the future.”
