News: Fundraising gala #CheerUpCharlie – The Show to take place in October

Anti-bullying campaigner and chat show host Charlie Kristensen (#CheerUpCharlie) is set to hold a fundraising theatrical gala #CheerUpCharlie – The Show at The Actor’s Church, Covent Garden, on 31 October at 7:30pm.

Charlie Kristensen is the 11 year old passionate anti-bullying campaigner and host of the online chat show Musical Chairs with #CheerUpCharlie.

The evening is set to feature an exciting line-up of West End musical performers and a few special surprises from Charlie

He said: “It is an honour to have so many people involved with the show who have supported me from the very start. There were so many times I felt alone, even when I was surrounded by people. I now feel anything but and am so lucky that I can now use my voice to keep growing this platform and doing what I love to raise awareness that we are all accepted for who we truly are.

I may be just one boy with a small voice, but I have a huge tribe behind me, and I will make a difference. This concert will be a celebration of all that I stand for; kindness, bravery and being able to stand true in the face of adversity. So, join me for a night of fun, laughter and music!”

All profits from tickets will be split between Acting For Others, which provides financial and emotional support to theatre workers in times of need, and The National Deaf Children’s Society which is the leading charity for deaf children.

The show is produced by Mark Robert Petty, who has produced successful concert series The Crazy Coqs Presents at Brasserie Zédel and The Crazy Coqs for the last three years.
