A menu of opera and cabaret

AN ‘Evening of Song’ with international opera stars at Thirlestane Castle on Monday, July 23, aims to raise much needed funds for Greenlaw-based charity Equibuddy.

Opera stars Ann Murray and Robin Leggate, plus pianist Mark Packwood, will perform a programme that ranges from opera, through operetta to cabaret and a fun evening of superb entertainment is guaranteed. Dinner tickets have already sold out but there are still drinks and canape tickets for the concert, priced at £60.

Equibuddy, a growing young charity (founded in 2005), challenges people - many with disabilities and learning difficulties - to achieve their full potential through the unusual team sport of equestrian vaulting (gymnastics on the back of a moving horse).

Equibuddy relies on donations, trust fund grants, voluntary donations and fund raising activities to allow those it helps to enjoy equestrian vaulting at a highly subsidised price, helping them to become engaged with remarkable results for their physical and mental development.
