More news, no ads


BRITAIN’S Got Talent finalists Jack Pack will appear at Christchurch’s Regent Centre on Saturday 19th March as part of a special fundraising concert in support of the Brain Tumour Trust.

Since their success in the 2014 Britain’s Got Talent series, Jack Pack have become firmly established as one of the UK’s top swing groups.

They will be performing a medley of swing standards by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Nat King Cole as well as more modern hits by Michael Buble. Special Guests the Swingettes will also be singing.

Following the release of their self-titled Top 10 hit album, the group have performed a sell-out UK tour, entertained over 50,000 at Proms in the Park and performed at the Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium and Birmingham Symphony Hall.

Celebrated and enjoyed internationally, they continue to tour across the globe.

The special one-off show has been masterminded by the family of Julie Fisher who died in January 2015 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Julie raised around £25,000 for the Brain Tumour Trust and her family pledged to continue her legacy with the 70 Before 70 campaign to raise £70,000 before what would have been Julie’s 70th birthday on 26th March this year.

The Regent Centre is especially poignant for the family as Julie appeared on stage there herself in a number of performances with Footlights Theatre Company, including a production of Stepping Out when her daughters Dani and Zoe were children.

Regent Centre manager Oscar Sellick-Pilley said: “We are incredibly proud to be involved with the fundraising for 70 Before 70. The Regent Centre has been at the heart of the community for 90 years. The venue has a special place in many local hearts.

“As soon I heard about Julie’s story and her history with the Regent, I wanted to do all we could to be involved.

“It’s going to be an amazing night and I hope we raise as much as possible for the Brain Tumour Trust.”

Tickets are £25. For more information and bookings visit www.regentcentre.co.uk or call the box office on 01202 499199.
