Charity Dinner and Dance – our chosen charity

The Samaritans

The Samaritans (Cambridge Branch) provides vital anonymous support to any individual seeking ‘someone to talk to’ 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Wholly supported by trained volunteers, the confidential service allows people to talk freely, in full confidence, about deep and difficult issues.

As a charity, The Samaritans is entirely dependent on donations to keep it going, and to ensure that there is always a friendly voice available for anyone facing a challenging time in their lives.

John 18, Sams Director, says: ‘I am delighted to have the support of the Festival Players, which will help sustain the 30,000 or so callers who access the Branch each year, whether by phone, email, face to face or in other settings.’

Profits from the dinner – generated through the price of your ticket and winning bids at the charity auction – will be split between The Samaritans and the Festival Players.

To support this fundraising event, please share details among friends, family and colleagues (you can request reserved seating together at the time of booking).

Places are £47.50 each, to include drinks on the reception lawn beforehand, plus a three-course meal, charity auction and dancing to the Festival Players Band!

The event takes place at the Cambridge Union Building (just behind the ADC Theatre) on Saturday 16 July.

To book, please email dinner@festivalplayers.org by 6 July.
