West End Heroes

The Dominion Theatre is to once again host the charity show, West End Heroes, following the the show’s phenomenal success last year.

In 2013 the casts of many of the biggest West End musicals united with the finest UK military bands and musicians in a stunning performance that raised over £88,000 for the Help for Heroes charity.

They’re set to do the whole thing all over again on Sunday, September 28.

The 2014 West End Heroes gala concert will again unite the country’s top military musicians with even more West End performers and productions in a dazzling showcase of show-stopping numbers, unlikely song mash-ups and stunning choreography and precision drilling.

Returning to form the centrepiece of the gala, and under the directorship of Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs, will be The Central Band of the Royal Air Force, regarded as one of the finest military bands in the UK, and incorporates the celebrated RAF Squadronaires Big Band.

West End Heroes will once again be generously supported by many TV and theatre stars and will feature line-ups from current and past West End Shows.

The full line-up will be announced at the theatre on
May 29.

This year’s event has set a target to raise more than £100,000.

General manager of the Dominion Theatre, David Pearson, said: “It is an honour and a privilege to once again host West End Heroes.

“The Dominion is looking forward to welcoming the concert as one of the first major events following the extensive restoration and refurbishment programme, which will be completed over the summer.”

Help for Heroes is a charity that offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses while serving their country.

This is provided through grants to individuals, other service charities, capital build projects and four recovery centres across the UK as part of the Defence Recovery Capability (DRC).

Bryn Parry, CEO and co-founder of Help for Heroes said: “We are delighted that West End Heroes is taking place for the second year running and we can’t thank them enough for their amazing support.

“Last year saw an incredible amount raised for Help for Heroes and we look forward to their exciting plans this year.”
