All 30 CastAways members and their partners who came out for the NODA North West Region 2 Awards evening on the 29th of February 2020 had a lovely evening, filling a long table with laughter all night. Although the Grand hotel did let the night down with problems encountered with the food, service, bar and access, the CastAways set out to have fun and made the night their own. Still amazed that they had received eight nominations in their first full year with NODA, they clapped and shouted for everyone. Their own Tara Stott did a turn onstage singing for the hundreds who attended, to massive applause. They know how lucky they are to have such an amazing group of talented people and hope to have an even better awards night in 2021!
Linda at Marsh Mill approached Bispham CastAways to participate in their Halloween Fayre in the square along with singing Disney villains and some strange guests from Transylvania! A group of the undead CastAways members stalked around the square scaring the children with peeling faces and various wounds then performed a special zombilicious dance to the instantly recognisable “Thriller”. This was followed by a beautiful song from our very own Cinders from the upcoming family pantomime, “Cinderella” by Ben Crocker which is on the 13th and 14th of December; Friday evening and Saturday matinee. She sang the song “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus to much applause. We would like to thank all those who participated and came out to watch.
