Patient Event: Heart-Warming Evening At Billy Elliot The Musical
On 16th March 2011, London Vision Clinic patients were left inspired as they enjoyed a delightful evening hosted by London Vision Clinic at Victoria Palace Theatre, watching the extraordinary, heart-warming and award winning musical Billy Elliot.
Billy Elliot broke the Victoria Palace box office records and is the winner of “Best Musical” at the Evening Standard Awards, it is a musical adaptation of Stephen Daldry’s Oscar-winning film, with music by Elton John.
“We thoroughly enjoyed the show and thank you so much for the tickets and your hospitality” Andrew Lindsay, London Vision Clinic patient.
“Thank you again to you and the Clinic for the wonderful patient event the other night. The show was absolutely fantastic, my friend and I really enjoyed the whole evening. The tickets were so good as well! – I really didn’t think we would have such wonderful seats” Christina Walder, London Vision Clinic patient.
The story was set in the North East of England, where Billy, brought up by his father in a mining town was expected to box, not dance, let alone have dreams of attending the Royal Ballet School. Billy Elliot is a funny, heart-warming and feel-good celebration of one young boy’s unconventional dream, in a gripping tale of triumph over adversity and his fight to prove his doubters wrong by going all the way.
The tale was truly inspirational for London Vision Clinic patients.
