Event organizers just sent me this press release, which has some additional information. I hope to have further details soon.
Pirates Adventure is launching its new 2009 show on Saturday 2 May in Majorca in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
The spectacular event of action, dance, acrobatics and comedy, will be attended by children from the hospital and their families all of whom will be flown to the island for a week’s holiday especially for the event courtesy of First Choice Holidays.
Celebrities attending include Harry Potter’s Tom Felton, Pauline Quirke, GMTV’s Richard Arnold, from Coronation Street Sue Cleaver and Katy Cavanagh, Holby City’s Duncan Pow, actors Amanda Mealing and Danny Husbands and the BBC’s The Apprentice 2008 runner up, Claire Young; just some of the VIP celebrity guests on what promises to be a star studded guest list, who will be staying at the four star Melia De Mar hotel in Illetas.
Phil Saint, Marketing Manager for Globo Balear, the parent company of Pirates Adventure said:
““We are immensely proud to have supported Great Ormond Street Hospital for the last five years. We’ve successfully raised over £310,000 for the hospital and have delighted patients and their families at the Pirates Adventure Premiere.”
This year the Pirates Adventure Charity Premiere hopes to raise over 100,000 Euros towards the Theatres for Theatres appeal at Great Ormond Street Hospital. This is a new initiative to help treat children with complex neurological and craniofacial conditions by funding state-of-the-art operating theatres within a new children’s Centre for Neurosciences.
I also wanted to point out that the biography on the Pirates Adventure site lists Tom as an “actor and singer.” This is the first time I’ve seen him referred to as a singer in this type of situation, and that made me really happy. 🙂
Thomas Andrew “Tom” Felton is an actor and singer. He is best known for playing the role of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series, the movie adaptations of the best-selling Harry Potter fantasy novels by author J. K. Rowling.
