Stand Up For Ukraine

Charity Event with The Barn Theatre and the Everyman Theatre Cheltenham


The Barn Theatre and the Everyman Theatre Cheltenham have teamed up to host a night that will benefit refugees fleeing Ukraine conflict that can be live streamed worldwide at 7.30pm BST on Saturday 02 April.

The night will consist of a variety line-up including classical music, opera, comedy, choral music, classical and showtunes, as well a special reading by acclaimed writer Sir MICHAEL MORPURGO (War Horse, The Mozart Question). Other performers will include the impressionist RORY BREMNER, sketch actor BEN MILLER (Armstrong & Miller Show, Bridgerton), renowned comedian DOM JOLY, actor LISA MAXWELL, JOHN OWEN-JONES (Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera), JESSICA DALEY (BBC’s Over The Rainbow, White Christmas), and many more.

Everyman regulars will welcome panto-extraordinaire and host of ceremonies SAMUEL HOLMES (Curtains, Mrs Henderson Presents), as well as star clown TWEEDY to entertain audiences coming together for the good cause. There will be music by Every Voice Choir as well as a special performance by comedy-magician JOHN ARCHER (Britain’s Got Talent, CBBC’s Help! My Supply Teacher's Magic).

In addition to the DEC Ukrainian appeal, proceeds from the night will go to charities with which the Everyman has worked previously, Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees and GARAS (Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers), groups which work to work provide support to asylum seekers and to help foster compassion and cooperation in communities.

The ambition will be to raise £50,000 for these charities through ticket sales and through donations on the night.

For those who missed getting tickets, the live stream will be available worldwide with tickets on sale here: and

This event is made possible thanks to the support of BPE Solicitors and Crowe.

The word is woefully over-used, but we think you’ll allow us to describe Bryan Adams as a genuine rock legend. Creating hit after hit since his debut in the early 80s, he has consistently kept his sense of self and his distinctive musical style relevant without compromise. We were absolutely over the moon when Bryan chose to speak with OX, exclusively, ahead of his headlining performance at the Cornbury Festival in July.

It’s a strange thing to be confronted by a famous face whether in the flesh or over Zoom; you never know when you’ll be a little starstruck. Anton du Beke has spent most autumn weekends in my living room for the past eight years but despite that, I had no idea what to expect when we arranged to speak ahead of his ‘Audience With’ at the Wycombe Swan in May.
