What an amazing evening was had at our Valentines Concert in aid of Home-Start Cambridgeshire. Over 70 people watched Lepetit Ensemble at Hughes Hall on Friday night in a celebration of love. There was something for everyone of all ages to appreciate. As one concert goer enthuses “A wonderful evening! I wasn’t sure if it was for me. However, the intimate venue set the scene for the two very accomplished performers who sang and performed beautifully adding plenty of unexpected fun and humour throughout!”.
Special thanks go to our sponsors and supporters that made this event possible. To Hughes Hall for the fantastic venue and the staff who helped make it all happen. To Beautiful Balloons, Royston for helping us to make the venue look romantic with the lovely balloons. And to the following for raffle prizes: The Oak Bistro, Cambridge, The Park Seasons Restaurant and Hair and Beauty at Cambridge Regional College, Cambridge Arts Theatre and Waitrose Trumpington.
