Great Meeting Unitarian Chapel, Leicester
Friday 24th June 2011

Lovers of musical theatre should not miss David Kent’s concert, One Enchanted Evening, at Leicester’s Great Meeting Unitarian Chapel on Friday 24th June, to raise money for the Chapel’s Grand Piano Fund. Accompanied by David Hubery at the piano, David Kent will be performing a selection of songs including favourite show tunes from Les Misérables, My Fair Lady, Joseph and South Pacific, as well as hits by Tom Lehrer, Bette Midler and ABBA. Tickets cost £7, which will include wine and nibbles in the Garden Room.

A graduate of The London School of Musical Theatre, David Kent is an accomplished performer who has starred in many West End and off-West End shows, including ‘Songs For A New World’ and ‘Creatures Of The Night’. He has released several acclaimed CD’s, including ‘As I Am’ and ‘One Enchanted Evening’, and is a pantomime veteran! He will be taking his own show, Uglies Do Edinburgh – the further adventures of the Ugly Sisters after Cinderella has married her handsome prince – written with co-star Dereck Walker, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August.

Originally constructed in 1708, Leicester’s Unitarian Chapel is the city’s oldest brick building, facing the Highcross shopping centre, which is one of the newest. The Grand Piano Appeal aims to raise £900 to purchase a metal floor frame on wheels to strengthen the chapel’s existing grand piano and enable it to be moved more easily and safely.

So don’t miss out on an evening that will not only be thoroughly entertaining, but will also be raising money for a great cause!
