British actor Clive Dunn, best known for his role in the BBC comedy Dad’s Army, has agreed to take part in the Grand Variety Show on November 5 at the Lagoa Auditorium.
A long term Algarve resident, Clive Dunn has owned a property in the region since the early 1960s and was asked to take part in the show by his friend Jenny Grainer.
The show has been organised to raise funds for Tatiana Araújo, a two-year old girl suffering from Cerebral Palsy who is in need of specialist equipment, and 92-year old Clive Dunn will be doing his bit to help.
This is the fifth Grand Variety Show to be staged at the Lagoa Auditorium which has been offered for the evening by Lagoa Câmara along with technicians and staff for the show.
Jenny Grainer said: “Each year people tell me that the show was better than the year before and so I am always trying to find new and special artists. Once I hear about someone and manage to track them down to make the invitation, they rarely say no.
“The theatre is such a pleasure for artists to perform in and for the audience to watch them, and all for a good cause.”
As well as welcoming Clive Dunn to the stage, there will also be a performance from the Adágio Choir from Portimão and many other acts while a raffle run by the APAA will be used to help raise funds for a neutering programme for animals in the Algarve.
Tickets to the show cost €12. For further information, please call 282 381 201 or email [email protected].
