Sold out show Puttin’ on the Ritz raises £4,083.67 for hospice


Ben Lewis produced the sold out show Puttin’ on the Ritz at the Coronation Hall on Sat 5th August.

The night raised £4,083.67 and they also donated the forget-me-not with all its tealights used in the finale to the Hospice.

Ben ‘I enjoy it, it’s not work. There’s no better cause to do this for, somewhere local that’s so prominent in our community, the support I’ve had from St Mary’s hospice has made it so much easier to do.”

He was joined by fellow performers Connor Wood and Georgie Buckland. Together they sang and danced their way through Broadway classics such as Chicago, Westside Story and more recent work such as Finding Neverland.

“I think it was good to involve so many people, we’ve had much smaller groups in previous years. To do something for a charity with over 40 people in it, and from a range of ages. We had people from the age of 7 leaving inspired to do future work for charity.”

Last year he gained a place at the prestigious Guildford school of music, which is a real testament to his talent.

Bev Lewis (Ben's Mum) said “I’m very proud to say I’m his mum. He’s taken this on his own, from start to finish. He’s had a good team around him that he’s lead. I’ll always be there to support him.”
