Kingsley Hall at Westward Ho! has a new lighting system in memory of a local theatre stalwart. A community effort saw Sonia Gould, from Westward Ho! Youth Theatre, and Jackie Sharrock, from The Follies and Appledore Pirates, fundraise in memory of Carol Gould (Sonias wife) who died on May 23, 2015. Carol began operating the lights for Follies in the 1980s and it was something she enjoyed for many years, but would often complain the system was always playing up and they needed a new one. As a tribute, Sonia and Jackie decided to fundraise to replace them, staging a variety of events, including a memorial show. The first to benefit will be the youth theatres performance of The Wizard of Oz at Kingsley Hall on June 25-26 and July 2-3. Tickets are available from www.whytg.co.uk or 07718 619642.
