Birthday bash to mark Boston Standard’s centenary

THE Boston Standard is celebrating is 100th birthday this year – and we want you to enjoy the celebrations just as much as we do.

As a result, we have planned a birthday bash which everybody can enjoy, in the form of a sensational centenary show, featuring some of the best performers Boston borough has to offer.

Not only does it promise to be a great show, but it will also be used to raise money for good causes in the Boston area, with any proceeds from the evening split between Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre, where the show will take place, and the Butterfly Hospice.

From German dancing and cheerleading to a modern covers band and an Americana folk group, there is sure to be something for everybody.

A total of nine acts have been confirmed for the evening, which will kick off at 7pm on Sunday, July 8.

Included in the line up will be well-known Elvis impersonator Ginty Elding, who recently performed with 1960s star Ricky Valance, and Adele impersonator Sam Sillett.

The Boston Grammar School Schuhplattlergruppe will also take to the stage, as will youth theatre group What Free Time!? which is fresh from a very successful debut performance in the school edition of Les Miserables.

Other slots on the night will be filled by rapper Ty Dalby, rock covers band Bullet Tooth and the United Cheer Team – a group of cheerleaders attached to Boston United. A number of other performers will also be taking part.

Tickets for this special event cost £3 and are available from the Boston Standard office on Church Lane. Call 01205 311433 for more.
