Posted by Anne-Marie on January 13, 2016

We’re very excited to announce that a legacy concert named “This Enchanted Evening” will be taking place at Solihull Arts Complex on the 13th and 14th February, in memory of Chris Macrow who tragically passed away in 2014.

The two day event will include guest performers and soloists from across the country, who will perform a variety of songs. The evening of musical delights hopes to raise £10,000, which will be matched by St James Place Foundation. The money raised will be split into three, which will be given to the charities Get A-Head, FAITEC and St James Place Foundation.

The concert has been organised in memory of Chris Macrow, who had a fond and strong connection of the Solihull Arts Complex.  A lover of music, amateur dramatics and amateur musical theatre – Chris was also a major force behind the Solihull Arts complex for 25 years.  In order to keep his love of theatre and music alive, This Enchanted Evening is to be a celebration of music and musical theatre.

This Enchanted Evening is one of many fundraising efforts made by Chris’ wife, Sarah Macrow, who last year kindly donated £4,000 to Get A-Head.  Get A-Head is one of the charities that Sarah and Chris chose to support, as well as FAITEC, who research into prosthetics for face cancers and injury. St James Place Foundation is a grant making charity that matches any fundraising made by partners and employees.

If you’d like to be at This Enchanted Evening, you can buy tickets via the Solihull Arts Complex website. Tickets are £15 for the 13th February and £18 for the 14th February.
