There are a lot of spotty goings-on today as the UK prepares for the BBC’s Children in Need campaign. Park School in Bournemouth and Henbury School in Wimborne are among those hosting Children in Need events in their schools today. The children have gone into school dressed in as many spots as they can.
Among events planned is a variety performance at the Barrington Centre in Ferndown, which promises to be a bubbly one but taking place next Friday instead.
Starting with the mayor, Cllr Cathy Lugg, in a giant bubble and ending with a stunning 500 balloon drop mixed with giant bubbles, the show should go with a pop. It will be held in aid of BBC Children in Need and will get everyone into the fundraising spirit with a variety of acts.
Pudsey Bear courtesy of BBC Southampton will be arriving before the start and children can be photographed with the iconic mascot before the event and during the interval.
The mammoth fundraiser will also incorporate a tribute to the late Sir Terry Wogan sung by Del Satterthwaite. Other entertainment includes Polz Apart, RCA Cheerleaders, Phoenix Juniors, Irish dancing, the Twins routine, Wessex International Majorettes and Ferndown Phoenix Musical Society.
Classic favourites will be sung by Lily Meads (winner of Miss Teen Dorset 2017), Warren Brown, Catherine Gray, Jenny Oag and Paul Michael aka Pavarotti amongst others. Songs include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, When I Grow Up, Bring Him Home, My Way and Nessun Dorma.
The date is Friday, 24 November and the bar opens at 6.30pm with ‘King of Keyboards’ Neil Zebedee, Jules and Olaf. The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets have been selling fast.
