A musical is coming to Worthing and entertainment doesn’t get bigger than this. ‘The Grand Rehearsal’ promises to be big fun with music and dancing, where the audience is part of the show – a bit of drama, sing-alongs, dancing and great audience participation!
The show, which will be fun for all the family, will be on at the Emmanuel United Reformed Church, St Michael’s Road, Worthing, on Thursday 22 March at 7.15pm, and then Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 March at 4.00pm. Tickets cost £6 for adults, and £3 for children. You can book your tickets over the phone by calling 01903 218444, or online at www.wchp.org.uk/event/the-grand-rehearsal
All the proceeds from ‘The Grand Rehearsal’ will be split between two charities: Care for Veterans, which provides care and rehabilitation services to disabled ex-Service personnel; and Worthing Churches Homeless Project, which provides accommodation, support and other services to people who are homeless.
Elizabeth Baxter, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at Care for Veterans, said: “We are very grateful to the organisers of The Grand Rehearsal; it is very kind of them to undertake this event for us. The money raised will be very well received by both charities, and go towards those we care for.”

About Care for Veterans
Care for Veterans (formerly The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home) was established in 1919 – the charity celebrates its 99th birthday this year (2018).
Care for Veterans is a registered charity, providing care and rehabilitation for physically disabled ex-Service personnel and their families. Our residents’ needs are complex and many have multiple disabilities. Many have an Acquired Brain Injury and some have neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis. Others are paralysed or do not have use of their limbs and some are terminally ill. We support on average 140 residents a year.
We care for up to 60 residents at any one time.
Our residents are aged between 29 and 99.
Our residents represent the tri-services: Royal Navy, Army and RAF.
Services at Care for Veterans include nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, an active social and recreation department, rehabilitation kitchen, a chaplaincy service, counselling, IT facilities, a rehabilitation garden, sensory room, coffee shop and function room and regular outings on our specially adapted coach.
With no regular government funding, Care for Veterans must raise over £1.5 million each year to maintain its nursing and rehabilitation services for ex-Servicemen and women.
