Wolverhampton Grand Theatre will be the venue for a night of theatre to mark Compton Hospice’s 35th anniversary on Saturday 15 July. The show, entitled ‘Ethos – the Best of Times’ will be an emotional blend of beautiful music, song and dance highlighting the importance of Compton Hall from its early beginnings to a place of major importance as a hospice today. With innovative lighting design and staging, this will be a showcase of local talent including the highly rated composer and concert pianist Luke Faulkner who will be joined by former Wolverhampton students Aimee Fisher and Lauren Soley from the London cast of ‘Les Miserables’, and Annie Rocket from Bridgnorth. The finale will culminate in the 100 Voices of the Celebration Choir. Curtain up 7.30pm; tickets from £25. Call 01902 429212 or visit grandtheatre.co.uk.
