Highlights from The Regent:
Although The Regent have matinee and evening films today, they very generously hosted the 6th Christchurch Living Advent Calendar in their foyer this evening.
This evening’s surprise performer was Sarah Harris, who performed an upbeat selection of Caro Emerald numbers to which some of the audience danced along.
At the end of the evening, Kelvin Medley-Jones, of The Primrose Trust, presented a cheque for £500 to Oscar Sellick-Pilley, the Manager of The Regent. (The Primrose Trust is also the Advent Calendar’s Prime Sponsor for the second year running).
