We’re very pleased to announce our first young performer…
Riya Vyas is 12 and has always been a passionate performer. She especially enjoys singing and acting and has been lucky enough to sing on stage at Wembley Arena as well as making her professional west end debut in the award wining production of Ragtime at the Charing Cross Theatre. Riya studies both the ABRSM and Musical Theatre syllabus as well as attending theatre classes on the weekend. She is so excited to be performing at the Surrey Showcase!
Widening the range of performing arts, our first circus act…
We’re excited to welcome Sarah to the list of talented performers, having first experienced her awe-inspiring aerial hoop performance at a Nomads Club Night in December 2017. Sarah is multi-talented, having appeared in The Nomads previous productions of Shakespeare and pantomime among others – we’ve seen her act, sing and dance, now we’ll see her acrobatic skill suspended in the air… not to be missed!!
Here’s our first Surrey Showcase dancer…
Having recently graduated from Reading Studio studying UAL in Performing Arts, Tilly Winford has appeared in several Nomes Youth Theatre and Nomads shows.
Tilly lives in Shere, and has had Cerebral Palsy (CP) since birth… but she’s not letting that hold her back!
“I would like to become a professional actress and show the world that disability is no longer a justifiable barrier to inclusive casting in theatre and television. I have a huge passion for performing and feel that there’s not many actors out there with disabilities and I would like to be part of changing this fact. I am determined to show the world that a disability doesn’t change a person inside, and that that person is just as capable of thinking/doing the same things as anyone else. I want to inspire and encourage others with disabilities to get out there and live their lives!”
We’re pleased to announce another act for the Main Stage…
After recording a handful of songs on his iPhone 5s, English multi-instrumentalist Barney Packer is now releasing them across three EPs; with all songs self-written, recorded, and performed.
The tracks have made people’s ears prick up, resulting in Barney being interviewed across regional and BBC radio stations, performing live sessions with his band for YouTube sessions, securing impressive press coverage in a number of publications and picking up radio play across the UK!
We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be providing savoury snacks which can be bought at the bar – all lovingly made by our super-local deli!
Goose is a charming little independent eatery that sits at the heart of the local community of Horsley. Situated in the quaint Bishopsmead Parade, they offer a unique destination for lunch or dinner with friends and family.
Alongside the savouries, we’re also going to have some yummy cakes and other sweet treats, provided by the lovely ladies of the West Horsley WI.
The West Horsley WI meets on the first Tuesday of every month at the West Horsley Village Hall, The Street, KT24 6DD.
With just 100 days till we open the doors, we’re celebrating by announcing our very first artist…
Millie Jane Franks
From an early age, Millie Jane Franks set out to become a performer and professional R’n’B/Soul Singer & Songwriter who backs herself with guitar or piano. Natural ability will only take a talented artist so far, but a strong will and determination has helped push this artist forward. Since graduating from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, Surrey, Millie has continued to drive her development and success by performing all over Surrey/Sussex. She has appeared on local radio stations such as Surrey Hills Community Radio and Eagle 3 Radio.
Millie has also appeared on the Nomads stage a fair few times too – check out the reviews and see if you can spot her name and picture among the panto sections! We’ve heard a little bird also mention that you might be hearing her soon on Brooklands Radio!
