The Beacon of Light hosted ‘An evening with Sir Tim Rice and Friends’ in March (2019) with the Oscar-winning Foundation of Light trustee entertaining guests with animated tales about some his most famous songs from shows such as the Lion King, Evita and Jesus Chris Superstar, which were performed live by artists from London’s West End.
Sir Bob Murray commented: “Sir Tim Rice has been a passionate advocate and supporter of the Foundation (of Light) for many years and ensured the Beacon of Light’s opening celebrations ended with a night to remember. It was fantastic and special occasion.”
The Beacon of Light is also home to Foundation of Light, which generates vital funds to be reinvested back in to the community through the charity’s pioneering and award-winning programmes.
