WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Parkinson's UK presents a fantastic evening of music and comedy in the magnificent surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall. Symfunny will see a spectacular line-up including BAFTA award-winning comedy duo Armstrong & Miller, multiplatinum selling tenor Alfie Boe, world-renowned 'doyen of British cellists' Julian Lloyd Webber, TV star and Perrier Award-nominated comedian Jason Manford, and singer-songwriter and 2010 X Factor finalist Rebecca Ferguson with a full symphony orchestra and choral ensemble. Join us for a fabulous night out and help us get closer to a cure for Parkinson's.
This event is the brainchild of music producer, composer and conductor James Morgan, who was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson's at the age of 42. He and his partner and fellow producer Juliette Pochin immediately saw the importance of using their musical connections to highlight the impact of Parkinson's and to show that it is possible to continue to work and live life to the full after diagnosis, as James continues to do.
