Of course, we haven't been anywhere or done anything for weeks and then the last ten days have been full-on! So, on Wednesday Paul and I saw the comedian [and musician] Bill Bailey at The Centaur at Cheltenham Racecourse. It was a charity gig for Winston'ss Wish which is based in Cheltenham:"Winston’s Wish is a charity that helps children, teenagers and young adults find their feet when their worlds are turned upside down by grief".
We have seen BB live twice before (in Oz) and he is excellent - very funny and very clever!
This is from the charity's website:
We are delighted that beloved British comedian, actor, writer and Strictly icon Bill Bailey will be performing exclusively for Winston’s Wish. Bringing his musical virtuosity, surreal tangents and trademark intelligence, Bill will perform at The Centaur, Cheltenham on Wednesday 13th September with the aim of raising funds to help us ensure no child or young person has to face the devastation of grief alone.
Paul Moore, Director of Fundraising & Marketing for Winston’s Wish said: “We are delighted that Bill has chosen to continue his support in such an incredible way, not only raising vital funds but also helping us to raise awareness of our work so that we have an even greater chance of reaching the thousands of grieving children and young people who are still sadly unaware of the support available to them from Winston’s Wish. Mr Moore added “Thanks to Bill’s generosity, we have an opportunity to raise awareness while he brings laughter and joy to his audience. So many young grieving people feel like they’re never going to smile, let alone laugh again. This is an important reminder that even in the darkest of moments, there is hope and we’re incredibly grateful to get to work alongside him and his team on this special event.”
