There will also be some musical interludes which I have not included here.

The Gala will be held at The Britten Theatre, Royal College of Music, Prince Consort Road, London SW7 2BS, at 7.30pm tomorrow evening – September 27th 2009.

All money raised will help tackle extreme poverty in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, and bring clean water to Ashanti villages.

Additionally, the charity are always looking out for volunteer teachers, so even if you are not based in the UK, you can always help ! Please get in touch if this is of interest to you.

    wow, the price really is fantastic, I would pay so much more here in Germany for tickets to the ballet! I have to admit I am not THAT far away from the UK, it is do-able 🙂 . How I would love to be there. Debby
