A fantastic variety show will help raise money for a rare neurological condition.

Paul Howe is inviting people from far and wide to attend Weston’s Big Variety Show next month.

The event will see professional magicians, illusionists, singers, dancers and comedians come together to entertain guests for one night only.

The show will raise money for Ataxia UK, a condition which attacks the brain and can cause problems with balance and speech in the early stages before leading to heart disease, diabetes and loss of bodily functions.

Mr Howe said: “Not only is it a cause close to my heart, after my niece was diagnosed, but it is also set to be a fantastic show, packed with amazing local performers.”

The variety show will be held in the Grand Pier’s Regency Suite, in Marine Parade, on May 18 at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £15, are available on 07421 357487 or from Crosspatch Craft Shop in Meadow Street.
