Kent Stage School students will perform for Breast of Bromley.


A Beckenham stage school will host a festive themed evening of entertainment in aid of charity volunteer group, Breast of Bromley.

Students from Kent Stage Academy of Performing Arts (KSA), based in Bromley Road, will perform carols, scenes and dances at the A Night Before Christmas concert.

Directed by Amanda-Jane Short and Jonathon Niton, the evening is set on Christmas Eve and will celebrate the role Breast of Bromley has in helping people understand how to prevent and diagnose cancer.

Course director Phillip Short said: “Our academy motto is ‘strive to succeed’, I think that message is fitting with the charity’s own and has brought our students together for such an important cause.”

Proceeds from festive food and wine prior to the show will also go to Breast of Bromley.

Vice-chair of the voluntary group, Debbie Lock, added: “It is wonderful to have the support of KSA and raise money in such a creative and enjoyable way.

“We call upon our local communities to help us make a difference.”

Tickets for the production, to be held at the KSA on December 16, are priced at £12 and are available to purchase online at
