It’s silver anniversary year for the famous Pepper Show – and you could be on stage to help celebrate this remarkable milestone.

New adult singers are being sought for this summer’s shows, and auditions are planned for January so you can show what you can do.

The 25th Pepper Show, scheduled for a string of performances in July, will be the latest instalment in a West Herts institution.

It all started back in 1988 when a group of people decided to produce a fundraising event to raise money for local hospice care across the Chilterns.

The event was a performance of iconic Beatles’ album Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Pepper was up and running.

The Pepper Foundation became a registered charity in 1994, named after the first fundraising concert.

Today it provides funds for The Pepper Children’s Nurses managed by Iain Rennie Grove House Hospice Care, a six-strong nursing team which cares for more than 40 children in the Herts and Bucks area, all of whom have life threatening or life limiting illnesses.

The nursing and family support teams also provide vital support and counselling for other family members.

The nurses provide much needed professional and loving home care on a 24 hour, 365 days of the year on-call basis, at absolutely no cost to patients or their families.

If you’d like to audition for the show, the person to contact is producer Linda Horsfall on 01442 865972.
