Following the sellout NoonFest last year, Indigo Tax, the premium accountancy firm based in Horsham, are inviting you to IndigoFest, taking place at The Capitol on 3rd September.
IndigoFest will present an evening full of music, comedy and entertainment and it’s all in aid of The Nkuringo Foundation Music School in Uganda. Veteran comedian Tim Vine will host the evening that will also feature chart topper Tony Burrows plus AC/ DC tribute band Bad Boy Boogie. As if that wasn’t enough, the line-up is completed by the likes of platinum-selling hit maker David Martin, songwriter for Elvis Presley, and 80’s new wave band Blue Zoo!
“Many of our clients are in the entertainment business so we thought it would be good to put on a music concert for charity,’ said Graham Noon, Director at Indigo Tax. “Last year we put on a similar event in the Capitol “Studio” Theatre, celebrating 10 years at Eversfield Studio. The show sold out and was a great success. This years event will be held in the main Theatre and we thought it would be a good to raise some funds for the Nkuringo Music School as Indigo already sponsors a child (Maria) in the village.”
So how did Graham and his wife Teresa, get comedy gold Tim Vine on board?
“Tim and I have known each other for years; we first met in a recording studio near Epsom Surrey in 1983 (I think!) I was an engineer there and he turned up with a Casio Keyboard singing songs about a girl named Jill! He did his first stand up routine in my flat in North Cheam in 1992 and I played piano for him on many shows including several Edinburgh Festival shows.”
The event will raise funds for The Nkuringo Foundation Music School in Uganda; a charity set up to create self-esteem through music. The project also run other community schemes in Uganda such as installing water tanks, ‘Light to read’ -solar energy projects, child sponsorships and health projects funding medical students and developing a health clinic. A special song has been composed for the event, featuring pupils from the Nkuringo Foundation Music School and the UK Pop Skool Choir. The UK choir will perform the song at The Capitol for IndigoFest, accompanied by a specially commissioned video filmed in Uganda, featuring the Nkuringo choir.
Tickets are now available to buy on The Capitol’s website and are just £15 each – this promises to be an evening full of fun for all the family and it’s all for a good cause!
