What do you get if you cross some of the West Ends finest voices with acoustic guitars, a piano and all in aid of raising awareness of Huntington's Disease? You get… Let's Go MT for HD!

Join Mark Newnham and friends for a night of spectacular live music at one of the West Ends most intimate venues.

As a positive gene carrier of Huntington's Disease Mark has decided to turn this negative back around, spreading some knowledge of this relatively unknown neurodegenerative disease. HD is a hereditary disease that affects roughly 10,000 people in the UK.

Mark has worked extensively in theatre appearing in shows such as Sunny Afternoon, Return to the Forbidden Planet, Lennon, All or Nothing and most recently Bananaman! But instead of saving the world with a banana he’s going to use his guitar instead. He and his partner Nicky Swift (Shirley Valentine, Les Mis, Footloose, Lennon, Cats) have together raised around £23,000 for HD and endeavour to continue to raise both money and awareness for as long as they can. So please come along and join the crusade! There will be a fun raffle, for all you fun raffle lovers... Drum roll please...

Friday 16 March at 8.30pm

Tickets: £15

Duration: 105 minutes including interval
