Summer Magic

Saturday, 25th August, 4:00pm

We are delighted that the ‘Summer Magic’ concert in Crowborough raised over £2000 to be split between The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts and the Brain Tumour Research Campaign.

The theme of the show was “Love, the silver thread that bonds mankind and, taking imagination by the hand, forms a bridge into the world of dreams.” The first half embraced readings of classical pieces carefully chosen from Shakespeare to Rudyard Kipling’s “How the camel got his hump,” all beautifully read by professional actors Paul Ansdell and Annie Aldington

The second half was the new ballet “The Four Seasons”, magically conjured up by the Fairy Princess and narrated by Father Christmas, who happened to be on holiday in Sussex.  To beautifully sung music and lyrics by local composer Mark Dury in combination with Paul Burke,  40 children aged 5 to 17 from the Caroline Wright School of Dance gave a stunning performance, marked not only by the extreme talent of the soloists but by the infectious enjoyment of the entire cast.


The show was professionally filmed and the DVD is available for £16.99 including p&p. Profits after recovery of filming costs will be shared by Children & the Arts and Brain Tumour Research Campaign

If you would like to purchase a DVD, you can order one by phoning 01892 668350.


Plans are now being developed to produce an expanded ‘Christmas Magic’ version of the show in 2013, again raising funds for both Children & the Arts and the Brain Tumour Research Campaign.

Race to Midnight

The first of our events being coordinated through Home House’s support is a gruelling endurance event which will culminate in an exclusive party at prestigious Home House. A select group of 20 (crazy!) people will swim across the Solent, cycle to Richmond Park then run to Home House, where they MUST party to midnight in order to qualify! What a challenge!

Please see their website for further information – or contact Jack Perschke on (tel 07855470449) or Anna McKay on

Places in the race are sold out but why not go along to Home House on the day to support the participants – and have a great night out for a good cause?

Portman Square Garden Party


Wednesday, 13th June 2012


After a week of seemingly endless rain, the sun shone on the righteous for the 500 guests who attended the Portman Square Garden Party and a resounding £14,000 was raised from raffles and auctions held on the evening. The event was sponsored by Hyatt Regency London Churchill, the Grazing Goat, Seddons, Savills, Selfridges & Co and Home House – we are hugely grateful for everyone’s hard work and support.


With thanks to Charlotte Fielding for the photographs:
