About the Evening...
Organised by local 13 year old Maddy, who is calling on her talented friends from Shropshire and the West End for a unique event to raise money for the Hive. We are aiming to raise £500 from the evening and thanks to Arts Council England, every £1 donated on the evening will be matched.
