Denise Welch has been added to the bill with fellow “Boy Meets Girl” star Rebecca Root for the fourth annual Christmas at the Cathedral Concert held in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust at St Nicholas Cathedral on December 15th.
The groundbreaking sitcom told the tale of the relationship between Leo (Harry Hepple) and Judy and Denise played Leo’s mother, Pam. Welch. It also featured Lindisfarne’s “Meet me on the corner” as its theme tune.
Ex Lindisfarne drummer Ray Laidlaw who is currently on tour with fellow band mate Billy Mitchell with the Lindisfarne Story show is producing the cathedral concert and is delighted that Denise has pledged her support to the annual Teenage Cancer Trust fundraising event.
“Denise is a very talented actress and she is well loved in the North East. She will bring a lot of humour to the concert and I’m sure that whatever she does on the night will go down a storm.”
Denise who is best known for her roles as Natalie Barnes in Coronation Street and Steph Haydock in Waterloo Road and as a panelist on the chat show Loose Women is also a great supporter and stalwart of the Sunday for Sammy concerts which has just released a best of DVD to raise funds for the charity.
“I love coming back home to Newcastle and this Christmas Concert is a great excuse to start your celebrations, its great fun, has a lot of talented people taking part and its raising much needed funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust too. I’m really looking forward to it.”
The concert, which is primarily sponsored by Benfield, will include performances from popular entertainers, choirs with traditional carols and festive readings. Tickets (£15) are selling well and are available from Newcastle City Hall box office on 0191 277 8030 or online at www.newcastlecityhall.org .
