New Vic Theatre 24 January 2020

Accompanied by Ryn and Jackie and with free tickets and a 70-seater coach paid for by Faz Shah, a musician performing at the New Vic, a medley of Asha children and parents, adult users and volunteers enjoyed a morning performance of ‘The Prince and the Pauper.’ 

A volunteer who attended with a couple seeking asylum and their daughter commented as follows:

‘What a treat to attend New Vic Theatre’s spectacular production of The Prince and the Pauper.  Laughter and amazement transformed many to a wonderful world of make believe.  Tudor history came alive via actors, acrobats, puppets, a dancing horse, musicians and singing – all with energy and grace.  An added unexpected and most welcome surprise was the distribution of sweets and a drink during the half-time interval.  Thank you Asha and to everyone who facilitated this splendid event.’
