A FUNKY evening of music, dance, cabaret and comedy is being held in Little Easton to mark the launch of a children's entertainment charity.

The Laughter Specialists are entertainers specially trained in bringing fun and laughter to the sick and vulnerable. They work in hospitals, hospices, SEN centres and schools.

To promote the laughter specialists and raise some much needed cash, a party is being held at Barn Theatre, Little Easton Manor on Saturday September 19, starting at 7.30pm.

Laughter Specialists fundraiser, Lynne Baker, said: "We are aiming to bring together people from the local area to have an evening of socialising and having fun.

"The intention, of course, is to raise money for the laughter specialists who put a smile on the face of children who in most cases don't have a lot to smile about. It's amazing that the effect of laughter can have a real impact on the recovery and well being of sick children.

"We hope that all those who attend will feel that as well as raise money for a great cause they have had an evening of entertainment which was actually really good value for money."

There will be a medley of entertainment on offer at the party, which has a 'funky and fabulous' dress code.

The ticket price covers welcome drinks on the lawn, canapés on arrival (supplied by Waitrose), dinner with wine on the table, lucky ticket number draw, and the Graham School of Dance cabaret.

Ratpack singer Shane Hampsheir and Groove Shack the Band will then take to the floor to provide a great night of dancing.

The money raised at the event will be used to plan and fund visits to Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, Edith Borthwick School, Bocking, and other special needs groups in Saffron Walden.

Tickets are on sale now at £43.75 per head or £350 for table of eight. To purchase tickets or for more information call Lynne Baker on 07905 082748 or e-mail lynnebakerlaughterspecialist@live.co.uk
