I saw this lovely young man perform on Saturday night and a treat it was too. Local Derby boy Ryan has been performing since he was nine years old and has gained a lot experience in the theatre world and commercially too. He's rocked the cruise liners and worked the stage like a true professional.
Wherever he performs, whether it be a large or small venue he knows how to work an audience and the audience on Saturday night at the Mickleover Country Park Social Club couldn't get enough of him. Even for a small venue he fills it with his presence and star performances of West End classics from The Lion King, Les Mis and Miss Saigon which completed the first part of the night. The second set involved fun filled, disco diva and singalong songs we could all join in with from Tina Turner, Queen, Take That and The Beatles. Something for everyone and no one went away disappointed, you really are guaranteed a fabulous night.
The night was a charity event raising money for the Me & Dee Charity whom Ryan is a regular supporter. The charity is run by Maria Hanson and together with her very small team work hard all year round to raise funds to provide holidays to anyone of any age, with life threatening, life limiting and terminal medical conditions. They also now offer holidays to serving and ex serving military who have sustained serious injury and PTSD through their service. There are two fabulous caravans on the East Coast resort of Mablethorpe and this really is a chance for these families to take time away and make some precious memories together. The charity have no funding from anywhere else other than from the the events they run and from public support so it was an honour to all get together with Ryan to help raise some precious pennies for this charity to enable them to continue their great work.
