Actor Peter Egan stars at concert in aid of Saving Strays at Guildford Cathedral on November 24th
Christmas will come to Guildford early this year when keyboard maestro, composer and renowned raconteur Rick Wakeman CBE headlines a very special pre-Christmas concert.
The event at Guildford cathedral on Friday 24th November will raise funds for Saving Strays, the all-volunteer UK charity which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes abandoned and abused dogs.
Get in the festive mood while raising money for a worthwhile cause with an evening of music and fun, as Rick plays old favourites from his own repertoire and those of other artists, plus seasonal tunes, all adapted for piano and keyboards and interspersed with hilarious anecdotes and stories that tickle his sense of humour.
Rick, who along with his wife Rachel has adopted Saving Strays’ rescue dogs, says: “Dogs have so much love to give and it upsets me that humans are not always reciprocal. If you let a dog into your life, then from first hand experience, I can guarantee that you will have a very special life.”
The bill for this exclusive evening will be completed by:
Musical comedy trio Triple Cream
Singer-songwriter Mim Grey
New vocal talent Nicola Olsen
Choir from Godalming-based music school, A Touch of Musicality
Peter Egan, screen star of Downton Abbey and Unforgotten, and co-chair of Saving Strays.
Join this wonderful evening while raising money to help lost and abused dogs around the world!
Co-chair Maria Slough says: “To be able to host this concert with Rick and Peter and everyone who is taking part is such an incredible way to close out the year. We will raise the roof for the dogs in need and it will be an experience to remember for everyone.”
