Friday 14 July 8:00pm at Craft Hall

Singing and laughter are reckoned to be two of the greatest spirit-lifters and this Friday, 14th July, you get two for the price of one when Life’s Merry Go Round comes to the Croft Hall. A hilarious evening of light-musical entertainment reflecting life’s ups and downs, Merry Go Round is comprised of singers Roxy Boulter and James Mitchell who both have significant musical theatre careers as well as Grahame O’Connor, who has accompanied and conducted all kinds of music from choral and orchestral to musicals and opera. Featuring popular songs from the Thirties to the Sixties this is an evening with great singalong potential.

Tickets (£10.00) are available from the Box Office (Newbury Building Society, Hungerford) and by telephone (01488 684038) and online at hungerforartsfestival.com
