Live at the London Cabaret – a stellar night with all the stars of the West End in aid of APF

Sunday night saw a glittering charity event take place for one night only – Live at the London Cabaret hosted by Gok Wan, in aid of Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis.

The concert was spearheaded by West End performer Becky Herszenhorn who is currently appearing in 42nd Street at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Becky recently lost her grandfather Norman Gibbs, from Portsmouth, to Pulmonary Fibrosis and wanted to do something to celebrate his life and raise money for this life-threatening disease, which causes scar tissue to form in the lungs.

The evening was a huge success where stars performed to a sold out audience at the London Cabaret Club. Headline acts included John Partridge, Ben Adams and Joanne Clifton alongside some fantastic West End stars who all gave their time and support to Becky and APF for this wonderful event.

Senior Operations Manager for Action for Pulmonary Fibrosos Roxane Caplan, who attended the event said:

“On behalf of Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis (APF), we would like to thank all the stars of London’s West End who came out and performed ‘Live at the London Cabaret Club’ last night to raise awareness of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), a progressive and irreversible condition, and much needed funds for Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis. It was a wonderful, sold out evening, full of glamour and showmanship, hosted by the fabulous Gok Wan and brilliantly put together by West End performer Becky Herszenhorn, in memory of her dear Grandfather Norman Gibbs who died from IPF. We are very grateful for their support.”
