An Evening with… BILL NIGHY | Tuesday 14th May

What a sensational evening! A packed host rocked with laughter as Bill Nighy, interviewed by Lizzie Mickery, gave us an hilarious, warm and intimate insight into his life and career.

We were doubly fortunate to have 2 opening acts from The Felpham Community College; Eloise Lyons (keyboard) accompanied by Libby Wood (vocal) who were commended by The Governors at the college’s fantastic talent show in March, followed by Karina Natkinis, the winner of the competition.

Prior to his arrival at St. Mary’s Centre, Bill Nighy was shown around the village, had fish & chips at The Fox, stood on the sea shore and soaked up the atmosphere of the village. He also visited Blake’s Cottage.

Telling stories about his background, life and career, he let us into the secrets of the indignity of playing a squid pirate with a. very wet Scottish accent, a vampire, which he absolutely loved, or a dying man in ‘Living’.

The mood of the audience as they left was one of elation and delight that he had taken time to support this essential campaign.

Look out for our next exciting, not to be missed show – details below!
