Following the death of their father in 2015, who suffered from Motor Neurone Disease, Neil and Carl Rutherford are presenting a new MND Charity Gala on 4th June 2023

The upcoming MND Gala, which is the third gala produced by Neil and Carl Rutherford, is selling fast but there are some tickets still available. It takes place Sunday 4th June 2023 at the Gordon Craig Theatre Stevenage. With songs from your favourite musicals, accompanied by a 36 piece professional orchestra, a choir of 40 and soloists from leading shows in the West End, this is an enjoyable evening celebrating the great musicals, as well as raising funds and awareness for MND. This years West End soloists include HAYLEY TAMADDON (Dancing on Ice, Coronation Street, Grease, Spamalot, Chicago), MATTHEW CROKE (The Voice, Aladdin, Grease, West Side Story), KELLY PRICE (Guys and Dolls, Mamma Mia, Aspects of Love, Passion, A Little Night Music), JAMES HUME (Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, She Loves Me), CHUMISA DORNFORD-MAY (Aspects of Love, The Addams Family, A Little Night Music) and OLIVER GORDON (Newsies, Mary Poppins, Les Misérables).


Additionally, there will be a beautiful moment of remembrance within the performance. If you wish to remember someone who had Motor Neurone Disease, please send a digital photograph and their name to and they will be remembered within the performance. 


The previous galas, which have raised almost £20,000 for MNDA, have sold out in advance; tickets can be booked at the Gordon Craig Theatre website or by calling 01438 363200.


If you would like to support the event, but are unable to attend, the production is also seeking sponsorship to fund the production on Just Giving'
