A charity cabaret night is coming to Mecca Dagenham.

Four performers will take to the stage in Cook Road on Friday, September 18, in a show to raise money for Women’s Aid, which supports abused women and children.

Singers Wendy Brown and Robert Evans will be joined by comedian Ross Henson and magician Jack of all Heart.

And organiser Jade Foster will be performing a dance to round off the line-up.

She said: “We have worked closely with Mecca Dagenham for the last year, holding monthly craft fairs which have been very successful, with stall fees going to the bingo hall’s chosen charity.

“I have organised this event because Women’s Aid helped me in the past and I wanted to give something back to them. This event has been in the planning for nine months.”

And the fun doesn’t stop after the acts finish, as a disco will entertain people into the night.

Jade added: “The evening is being well received by the public and tickets are selling nicely.

“This will be a different sort of night for usual bingo-goers, as this is being organised out-of-house and the acts are all people I have worked with before.”

Tickets for the show cost £5 or £10 for a VIP ticket which includes front section seating, a meal and a drink. 
All proceeds from the night will go Women’s Aid. To book a ticket, call 0208 593 6808.
