VIDEO: Charity centenary show a sell-out success

THE Standard rounded off its centenary celebrations in style on Sunday with a variety show featuring some of the best talent in Boston.

Blackfriars Theatre was packed to the rafters for the show as people flocked to catch our showcase of acts from the area, including folk band Unshaven, AJ Dance, Blackfriars Theatre and Dance Academies and the United Cheer Team.

Other acts were the Boston Grammar School Schuhplattler Gruppe, boxing poet Ty Dalby, The Biz Street Dance Crew, What Free Time?! youth theatre, Adele tribute act Sam Sillett and Elvis impersonator Ginty Elding.

Presenters from Endeavour Radio were the comperes for the evening.

The show was held not only to mark the special occasion, but also to raise money for charity.

Overall, we raised a total of £660, which will be split between Blackfriars Theatre and the Butterfly Hospice Trust.

Standard editor Stephen Stray said: “It was great to see a packed house enjoying our special Centenary Variety Show, with the audience treated to a diverse selection of acts, who can all be extremely proud of their performances.

“This was the first time The Standard had organised such an event and I would like to thank everyone who supported the occasion, from the acts to all those behind the scenes – I am sure all who were there will agree they did a fabulous job.”
