To celebrate all the stories and people involved in All Present we held a heritage showcase at The Pavilion Theatre, Wednesday 20th November 2019. Our show was a sell out with over 150 tickets sold to people in the community, all money raised being donated to KPC. KPC Youth & Community is a charitable organisation which provides a safe and nurturing environment for children, young people and those who impact on their lives. KPC does this by providing training, recreation, advice, support and creating opportunities to improve well-being for all within the Bridgend area.
This youth lead event was open to the public and featured a vintage fashion show, alongside musical and dance performances.The show dazzled our audience members as they were taken through an immersive, time-travelling experience. There were musical performances of ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’ from our very own Andrew Sisters in the 1940s, Porthcawl Comp choir’s rendition of ‘Penny Lane’ taking us back to the 60s, and solo performances of ‘It must have been love’ and ’Chiquitita’.
Emma Louise School of Dance did an amazing job pulling together 3 dance pieces, encouraging young people from the ages of 8 to 16 to dance and perform on the stage! The audience was in awe of their 1940s Jive, 1980s breakdance, and 90s ’Spice Girls’ routine!
To top it all off, to take us through each era, we had our 3 stylish young models, rocking fashion from the 1940s up to present day! They made their way down the catwalk with such elegance, and it was amazing to see the progression of fashion and how styles have changed over time.
