In a major coup for theatre and comedy fans, Show Of Strength persuaded broadcaster, actor and writer Sandi Toksvig to create and perform a tribute to two of England’s greatest heroes, exclusively for our friends and supporters.

The date Wednesday 22 April – the night before St George’s Day and the anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. Sandi rounded off a champagne reception and slap-up dinner at the plush Holland House Hotel, Redcliffe Hill, BS1 6SQ, with a privileged preview of her latest comic show:


The gala dinner celebrated Bristol City Council’s recent budget that awarded the company much needed funding after being cut last year. It will also help SOS to focus its energies on what it does best: telling local stories and giving a stage to local actors and writers.

A terrfic meal, the Sandi Toksvig show, a chance to meet Sandi AND the warm glow of knowing the audience helped to keep one of Bristol’s best-loved theatre companies alive & well.

You two could also feel that warm glow perhaps…….
