Living Advent raises thousands
Published 18/12/12



HENLEY'S Living Advent Calendar has raised more than 3,000 for its three charities.

The scheme notched up the landmark total following last night's (Monday, December 17) performance at the King's Arms Barn.

The evening saw Keith and Val Jefferies recite Christmas songs and stories for more than 100 guests, who enjoyed cheese, pate and wine.

Launched last year, the Henley Living Advent Calendar features 24 performances by various acts at different locations in the run-up to Christmas. Performers' identities are not revealed until their shows, which all start at 6.15pm.

Proceeds are given to Camp Mohawk, the Chiltern Centre and Sue Ryder Care.

Organiser Julie Perigo said: "We are hoping that, as Christmas draws nearer, the generosity of those watching will increase too - and that we can reach 4,000."

On Sunday, Stageworks Performing Arts School performed excerpts from their pantomime Aladdin at Lovibond's Brewery off Greys Road. More than 150 people showed up.

More than 150 people turned up at La Barca in Station Road on Saturday, where the El Amanecer dancers demonstrated three types of Argentinian tango - Salon, Milonga and Valse. Guests enjoyed tapas and wine.

And on Friday, D:Two in Market Place hosted a puppet Nativity play starring three bouncing camels and a children's chorus. The town's MP John Howell was among the visitors.
