A charity dedicated to providing opportunities in performing arts put on a special performance for a guest of honour this week.

Flash Musicals, based in Methuen Road, Edgware, put together a string of blockbuster hits from a variety of top shows including Hairspray and the Music Man.

The group, which gives underprivileged people the chance to showcase their talents, performed in front of the Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Margaret Devine.

Cllr Devine, whose background is in adult social care, said the routines would be sure to leave a lasting impression on the audience.

She said: “Flash Musicals is one of the many voluntary organisations in Harrow that do a wonderful job in supporting some of our most vulnerable residents and users have been closely involved from the very beginning.

“Thank you to everyone who took part in this special performance. I’m sure there was a lot of time and effort that went into it and I will always remember it during my time as Mayor.”

As well as the musicals run-through, which at one point featured 82 performers, there was contributions from traditional Indian dancers from Swaminarayan School and More Than Just a Choir group from The Bridge Mental Health Centre.
