Grant Baynham and Friends : Charity Night Monday 5th December 2016 In the last few years we have had some fantastic charity evenings with Grant and his guests. So enjoyable were these evenings that tickets for this year’s event have been selling well - even before the guests were announced. All proceeds go to Orpheus, a charity founded by Sir Richard Stilgoe. “Huge thanks to everybody at Stockport Folk Club, especially Grant (my fellow survivor of Esther), for your efforts last year and for doing it all again for us this year. You all know how much making music cheers people up, and that is what Orpheus did thousands of years ago, and what the Orpheus Centre is still doing now.” Richard Stilgoe
Tickets £10
Tickets ordered on-line can be paid for by PayPal or credit/debit cards. If you don’t have a PayPal account use the ‘Check Out’ button rather than the ‘Check Out with PayPal’ button. Once ordered, tickets will be available for collection on the night. You may wish to print out the online receipt as proof of purchase but this is not necessary to gain entry to the event.
“The work of the Orpheus Centre never fails to impress me and I am proud to be a supporter.”               Dame Judi Dench Quicksilver Tom Lewis The Old Sea Dog himself http://www.tomlewis.net/index.htm
All proceeds to Grant’s Charity Gifts for the raffle would be warmly welcomed - perhaps a chance to donate an unwanted CD! Guests Home Home Location Location Residents Residents Gallery Gallery History History Video Video Contact Contact
