Every year since 1997, Coventry has sent a team of young athletes to The International Children’s Games. The cost of sending the Coventry team has always been covered through generous sponsorship by individuals and organisations. Over the years, the Games’ fund has become depleted.
The Albany Theatre Coventry presents a spectacular Gala on Friday 17 February at 7:30pm which will raise funds to help send this year’s team to Kaunas in Lithuania, and to also build up the reserves to help in future years.
The Gala is being organised by Albany Young Producers, a new group of 16 to 25 year old volunteers based at the theatre. The Gala features talented young performers from the local area – young performers raising money for young athletes, organised by young producers. Brilliant!
The gala is a variety performance featuring acts including:
- Charlie Blackwood - Solo Singer
- Elite Dance Academy - Dance Troupe
- Tazmin Barnes - Solo Singer
- Ffion Rebecca - Solo Singer
- Coventry Youth Jazz Orchestra
- Street Mix Youth Theatre & Dance Academy - Dance Troupe
- Jodie Dickson - Solo Contemporary dancer
- Catlin Gee - Monologue
We have written to all the athletes at their last known address, but many will have moved on. Do you know anybody who took part in the games? We plan to display memorabilia from the games over the years – athletes are asked to contact Rebecca Finley, Albany Young Producers – rebecca.finley(at)albanytheatre.co.uk
Would you like to sponsor the event?
Would you like to get your name into the souvenir programme as a sponsor, with or without an advert? Again, all money raised will go to the Fund. Please contact Rebecca for more information.
