West End Heroes raised £78,243.01 for Help for Heroes in 2014. Following this phenomenal success, the charity gala will return to the Dominion Theatre on Sunday 4th October 2015.
The show will once again unite the country’s top military musicians with the best of the West End in a dazzling showcase of show stopping numbers, unlikely song mash-ups, stunning choreography and precision drilling, with a target of raising £100,000 for the charity.
Christopher Biggins, hugely popular star of musical theatre and screen comedies, one of Britain’s best-loved TV personalities and pantomime dame extraordinaire is the larger than life host. Biggins will not only oversee proceedings but also perform in several big song and dance numbers that will be kept secret until the night!He said “I’m delighted to be able to give my support to West End Heroes by hosting what I know will be a marvellous evening, with some wonderful surprises. It’s a wonderful way for the West End to show their appreciation for all that our lovely service folk do for us and to support such a worthy charity.”
The West End cast of Elf The Musical will join musical theatre and West End favourites Bonnie Langford and Mazz Murray who will make special guest appearances. They will be joined by classical crossover sensation Charlotte Jaconelli, and recent Britain’s Got Talent magician extraordinaire Jamie Raven.
Returning to form the centrepiece of the gala and under the baton of Squadron Leader Piers Morrell will be The Central Band of the Royal Air Force, which is widely regarded as one of the finest military bands in the UK and incorporates the celebrated RAF Squadronaires Big Band.
There will also be support from The Band of HM Royal Marines, The Band of the Army Air Corps and a Ceremonial Fanfare team, and a special performance by the Colchester Garrison Military Wives Choir. There will also be a performance from the West End Heroes Choir – made up of people working behind the scenes in the West End.
More West End casts and performers will be confirmed in the coming weeks – so, keep in touch!

Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and four Personnel Recovery Centres across the UK. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won’t let them battle alone.
“Help for Heroes is all about ‘doing your bit’ and West End Heroes is a wonderful example of people coming together to raise money for a worthwhile cause. Because of events like this and people like you raising money, we are able to provide practical, direct support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries as a result of their service. The money you raise is needed, it is being used and it is hugely appreciated; the war may be ending, but for these brave wounded the battle will have only just begun. We need to be there to support them for life, and that support needs to be the best. I would like to say thank you for this and every other fund raising event that it inspires.”
Bryn Parry, CEO and Co-Founder of Help for Heroes
