As part of the build up to this year’s Pantomime production ‘Cinderella’, the Assembly Hall Theatre is unveiling a top secret sculpture.
Guy Portelli, the sculptor who won the support of three Dragons from TV’s Dragons' Den will be unveiling a dramatic art installation built in collaboration with Hospice in the Weald Patients and the Assembly Hall Theatre.
The Assembly Hall Theatre’s Trainee Lighting Technician Kester Hulland Rumley has been working closely with patients from the Day Therapy Centre at the Hospice in Pembury on this project. Once the object has been unveiled it will remain in situ until 5 January 2011.
Guy Portelli, a keen supporter of Hospice in the Weald says: A very dear friend of mine was cared for by the Hospice last year and I know how important this charity is to our community. I am delighted to unveil this piece of art created by Day Therapy Patients and hope that this helps in some way to enhance more awareness and increase donations to such a wonderful cause.
Brian McAteer, Theatre Director for Assembly Hall says: Everyone involved has worked tirelessly to ensure it will be delivered on time. This collaboration will deliver a beautiful piece of art of epic proportions and exquisite detail.
The unveiling took place at 2:30pm on Tuesday 16 November outside the Assembly Hall.
