Barnabas Safe & Sound
Last Saturday, 12th May, saw the 2012 Mayor's Civic Charity Ball take place at Morpeth Town Hall. The event raised funds for local charity, Barnabas Safe & Sound.
The Mayor, Cllr. Phil Taylor adopted the charity for any fundraising he undertakes in the role of Mayor, having been impressed with the support it gives to young people who might possibly end up being homeless.
Gillian Turner, Town Clerk, organised the event, and, having heard Tom perform at Marabini's in Morpeth, asked him if he would provide an hour of live entertainment, before the Disco. Tom's repertoire went down very well, he had guests dancing from the start, and ended up singing for just over an hour and a half!
Tom has become known for his classical and musical theatre repertoire, but here he performed swing, dance and pop - which all went down really well, demonstrating what a versatile singer he is.
Gillian Turner later said "We were all up dancing and
singing by the end of the first song. Everyone, including the Mayor, agreed that the evening was a HUGE SUCCESS and Tom was a fantastic performer - with Tom singing something for everyone - young and old!!".
Tom would like to thank all those involved with the organisation of the event, and especially the Mayor, and Gillian. He hopes too that it was a successful night for Barnabas Safe & Sound!
Tom's next public performance is this Friday, 18th May 2012 at Marabini's Ristorante in Morpeth. It being Friday, he hopes to start around 8pm
