Another year has passed, and Mixed Feelings were yet again invited back to perform and entertain at The Grosvenor House, Great Room, for The Grand Order Of Water Rats.
Mixed Feelings had the privilege of sharing the stage with Alfie Boe and the legendary, Rick Wakeman.
Alfie and Rick performed a fantastic medley of songs, and it was just so perfect with only the two of them performing.
A bigger crowd and turn out this year and the evening even went on longer than the previous year.
It’s looking like the GOWR Ball is getting its status back and becoming huge once again.
From Film Stars to Punch and Judy Men, Pop Stars to Sporting Heroes, Circus Acts to Clowns, Comics to Dramatic Actors, Musicians to Television Presenters, Magicians to Photographers, Radio Stars to Royalty.
The Grand Order of Water Rats exists as a wonderful Fraternity and Charitable Organisation.
The GOWR and The Combined Theatrical Charities, The Grand Order of Water Rats is a member of the Combined Theatrical Charities (CTC).
Under the title ‘Acting For Others’ the CTC organises bucket collections every year in theatres all over the country; usually the last two weeks in October – one week in the West End and one in the Provinces.
Between them the fifteen members organisations of the CTC try to cover all aspects of hardship and need within our profession including backstage and front of house staff, performers and their dependants too.
The Grand Order of Water Rats charitable fund represents an unselfish giving to those less fortunate than themselves, providing a stream of support for nationally recognised charities, whilst embracing benevolence of their members, their families and their show business colleagues.
A great organisation, and Mixed Feelings really do enjoy playing this event.
Once again and fingers crossed, we certainly hope to see you again next year.
Thank you very much GOWR
