Children in Need is always a magical night and 2017 was no exception. This year, the cast of Eastenders went big with this spectaular mashup of musical theatre faves set in and around Albert Square.

So it is amazing to see how many performers have answered the call from Giles Terera and Danielle Tarento to join Songs and Solidarity on Sunday 25th June. Taking place at Trafalgar Studios 1 at 7.30pm, Songs and Solidarity is a West End fundraising gala evening of song, dance and comedy for the hundreds of families made homeless and the relatives of those who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire.
