A community action group is organising two festive shows for members to let their hair down and raise awareness of what they do.

The Critical Condition Variety Roadshow is a subgroup of the Town of Hartlepool Challenge Group, which also spearheads the Save Hartlepool Hospital campaign.

It should be a good all round night

It is taking two debut fun-filled events on the road with a variety show for adults and a pyjama party for children.

The variety show is at Hartlepool United Supporters’ Club, on Monday, December 21.

The line-up features local singers, dancers, comedy and magic.

One of the organisers, Tony Kramerk, said: “It should be a good all-round night.

“The idea is it is our debut show and next year we are hopefully going to take it to different venues around the Hartlepool area and raise funds for worthy causes.

“All the performers and appearing free of charge as are the organisers and sound and light technicians.”

The line-up includes solo artist Maeve Cuthbertson, singing duo Just The Two Of Us, musician JB Butterfield, comedy-singer Stephanie Aird, vocalist and magician Tony Mann, and Gurlz, from Elwick Academy of Dance.

The show starts at the club in Sandringham Road at 8pm.

The children’s pyjama party is on Saturday, December 19, at Stephanie’s Cafe, in Church Street.

Activities will include Christmas cracker and card making, baking gingerbread men and Christmas tree cupcakes.

Santa will also pay a visit and give out a present for every child.

There will be one session between 10.30am and 12.30pm and another for other children at 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

Both Critical Condition events cost £2. For tickets for the adult show, contact Tony on 07429 370225 or for the children’s party, call Becky on 07913 379114.
