Big Top Concerts

"Welcome to the Specials section."
Here you will get to see some of the extra special events that is in the programme. These will include our "Big Top" concerts. These usually follow a theme or a particular style. The idea is to be able to include music, dance, song and the spoken word all in the one show.

Other events include specific shows that are performed in the Cause.
Check back soon to see what's coming.
