Barnardo’s Scotland Event

Posted: 3rd December 2014

Barnardo's ScotlandOur Christmas Wish is… music!

The popular stage show, A Christmas Wish, returns to the Usher Hall with a full evening of music and entertainment in support of Barnardo’s Scotland.

The must-see event was launched in 2012 and brought warmth to winter when over 200 young people from the MGA Academy of Performing Arts sung and danced to Christmas-themed musical theatre and songs in a choreographed show. This year’s performers, from across Scotland, might be next year’s Broadway stars, so keep your Saturday free on 13 December 2014.  Tickets are still available but selling fast.

Co-Founder of MGA Academy Andrew Gowland, said: “The MGA Academy of Performing arts is once again extremely proud to be supporting Barnardo’s Scotland. As an organisation working for the development and empowerment of children and young people it’s clear to MGA that there is no better charity to support!

A Christmas Wish is an evening of sparkling entertainment celebrating the festive season and we sincerely hope that the money raised for Barnardo’s Scotland will go some way to making sure that those children in need don’t get forgotten at this time of year.”

Barnardo’s Scotland Events Manager, Kara Gillies, said: “Over the last two years, the event has raised around £20,000 for specialist projects and services in local communities and with your support we hope to raise even more this year to help families struggling in winter.

Tickets are now on sale from the Usher Hall box office, and all proceeds donated to Barnardo’s Scotland go towards helping vulnerable children in Scotland.
