An Evening with Kevin and Alan
Tue 28 March 2017, 16:15 – 20:00 BST
This is a very special event where Alan Titchmarsh will interview The Royal Ballet Director Kevin O’Hare at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden, in aid of the Holy Trinity Hull Development Campaign.
Kevin O'Hare will talk about his personal journey from being a small boy taking up dance in Hull, to becoming the Director of The Royal Ballet. Kevin will also give us a unique ‘behind the scenes’ glimpse of the Company.
The evening will begin with an optional backstage tour of The Royal Opera House at 4:15pm – an opportunity not to be missed in itself – before we move on to The Hospital Club at 6pm for drinks, canapes and the interview.
The evening is in support of the amazing transformation of Holy Trinity Church, soon to be renamed Hull Minster. The project will not only preserve and protect this wonderful medieval Grade I listed church, but will create a new performance and arts centre for Hull, a visitor destination, and a place for those in need to find help through Holy Trinity’s social welfare programme.
Last year Kevin came to Hull for a similar event, held in the church. He held the audience spellbound with stories of his childhood in Hull, of his career as a professional dancer, and his current role, leading the world renowned Royal Ballet. His insights brought the world of professional dance vividly to life.
An Evening with Kevin and Alan promises to be a fabulous, one-off experience not to be missed.
