On 16th December 2012, Beckenham’s local community joined us to watch our year 2 students perform A Night Before Christmas in aid of The Breast of Bromley. The Breast of Bromley is a volunteer group for research charity Breast Cancer Campaign.

We are thrilled to announce that  the show was a sell-out and we raised £1,200 on the night with £800 being raised from ticket sales, and £400 from the raffle and the sale of mulled wine and mince pies.. Thank you to all the showgoers who was evidently in the Christmas spirit of giving!

The KSA students did a terrific job performing this year’s show, led by Amanda-Jane Short (Director), Jonathon Niton (Director), James Beal (Musical Director) and Emma Bone (choreographer).

In  attendance was Deputy Mayor of Bromley and Chairman of Breast of Bromley, Ian Payne who says:

“‘What a fantastic evening we had in the company of KSA performing ‘The Night Before Christmas’, certainly the best kept secret in Bromley. The performances of dance and singing from the artists were outstanding and to very high standard and worthy of any stage, so well done to all involved.

Also a big thank you to KSA  for its support to the ‘Breast Of Bromley’ Cancer Campaign. Having this type of support gets the message out about this illness that hits so many people. Your fantastic evening has enabled us to raise much needed funds, for which we thank you and your valuable audience that attended on the night”.

Thank you once again to all those attended; we look forward to opening our doors once again for Christmas 2013.
