SeriousFun at The Roundhouse with ‘A bit of Fry & Laurie’, Boy George and Orlando Bloom
For the third year running we have had the pleasure of working with and supporting The SeriousFun Children’s Network and their annual fundraising gala in London.
We are so incredibly proud to work with this beautiful and meaningful charity, set up by the late actor and philanthropist Paul Newman. The charity provides life-changing camp experiences to children and their families who have been affected by serious illnesses.
The 2018 gala was hosted by TV presenter Natalie Pinkham and Clea Newman (Paul Newman’s daughter) and it was a dazzling night of amazing performances, inspiring speeches, and a lot of laughter.
With an incredible ‘cast’ of VIPs there to support and help raise awareness of the incredible work of SeriousFun guests were treated to surprise performances from Boy George – who took to the stage bringing all 400 plus guests to their feet with renditions of Culture Club classics inlcuding ‘Do You Really Want to Hurt Me’ and ‘Karma Chameleon’. Followed by Orlando Bloom who gave a moving speech on the importance of the SeriousFun camps, enrapturing the audience with his uplifting words . The finale came from Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry who united to perform a SURPRISE sketch of ‘A bit of Fry and Laurie’ leaving the audience in absolute stitches. The duo caused an uproar of laughter and cheers all around.
Not forgetting the real stars of the show, the SeriousFun Campers who sang, danced and wowed us all!
The evening was a wonderful success and raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for the charity. We are so inspired by the work that SeriousFun continue to do through their thousands of camps now all around the world. Bravo SeriousFun!!
