All Star Variety Show Middleton Arena

On the Sunday 25th January 2015, there was a fabulous All Star Tribute Show in aid of Tomas Leighton Care.

Maxine and Brian Warner and Suri Lederberger organised this superb night of top class entertainment.

A huge amount of work and planning went into the show for months beforehand and there were a variety of wonderfully talented acts involved with the actual show on the night.The show was absolutely amazing. We have had so very many emails and calls from people saying what a fantastic night they had.

The show started with a short speech by Suri Lederberger and then the show began

The show included performances by Maurice Abrahams, The Morgan School of Irish Dancing and Abba 2 Nite, who removed one item of clothing every song, to roars of applause for an encore from the guys when they were down to the last layer!

Also appearing were The Greater Manchester Police Dixie Band, The Jewish Theatre Choir, The King David School Choir, Maxine and Brian Warner and finally The Bachelors, who I still can’t believe topped the bill for no charge.

All the acts made the evening a truly special occasion. It was a magical night.

We were also honoured to have Sonny Warner MBE there supporting us and invited him up on stage to thank him for his incredible raising efforts on Tomas’s behalf over the past 5 years. He is an amazing example to us all and a truly inspiring 92 year old (Sonny is pictured here with us).

We are very proud to be able to announce that the final total raised on the night was an a amazing 7,450 pounds!

A HUGE thank you goes to all the artists and sponsors involved with this fantastic fundraiser and to Maxine and Brian Warner and Suri Lederberger, since without their dedication and hard work, none of this would have been possible.
