We’re into our fourth week of Facebook live stream gigs in collaboration with Forward 4 Wiz Trust (F4Wt) and this one is going to be GREAT! Catch Jamie Halama at 8pm (or just after the NHS clap!) this Thursday 23 April live on the West End Centre Facebook page. Jamie is one of the most exciting and dynamic contemporary piano players you are likely to encounter, delighting audiences with his speed of light fingers and energy. Hailing originally from Farnham, Jamie is a firm favourite of local musos and F4Wt alike. Check out who else will be live streaming in the next few weeks at westendcentre.co.uk/music.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre, in partnership with National Theatre Live and Amazon Prime Video, have joined forces to make something special - a filmed theatre production of the critically acclaimed Fleabag. This rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life is available to stream any time you like for a small donation. Proceeds will go to several UK based charities that are on the front line combating the COVID-19 pandemic and supporting those affected by it.
