The Flying Foulser's

My good friend John Seton who has had MS for the last 10 years will be part of a group of 25 raising money for the MS Therapy Centre in Norwich and the Norwich District MS Society.

There is soon to be some media coverage in the local press and local publications and myself, my wife Sandra and son Nathan (who will be sixteen the day before) are self funding our jumps to be part of the group called "Jump with John".

We as a family are trying to raise 500 towards these very important causes.

The MS Therapy Centre Norfolk and Norwich District MS Society. The MSTCN and The Norwich and District Branch of Multiple Sclerosis aims to meet the needs of people affected by all neurological conditions.Their objective is to become the single point of reference for all those affected by neurological disorders in Norfolk.The Centre has considerable experience in providing services for people affected by MS. The building is a tremendous facility for people with MS and other chronic neurological disorders, providing a range of physical therapies and other services for patients.

We have our own fundraising page with the attached link and would be very grateful of any donations,

Norfolk student selected for place in National Youth Theatre

Norfolk student selected for place in National Youth Theatre 2015Emma Wright, a music student at the University of York and former Head Chorister at Gresham’s School, has been selected for a place in the world-leading youth arts organisation the National Youth Theatre (NYT). The NYT is the leading platform for showcasing young acting talent which has nurtured such British actors as Ben Kingsley, Orlando Bloom and Dame Helen Mirren.

Emma said of her achievement, “The audition for the NYT was split in to three parts, movement and physical theatre, devising and improvisation, and an individual monologue. About fifty people auditioned the same day; it was quite intense but a lot of fun and it was great to meet so many like-minded people. I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am to have been given this opportunity; it’s such an honour.”

Emma is also a member of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain.  After successfully gaining a place in the Training Choir when she was 16, a year later she was promoted to the Main Choir. Whilst at Gresham’s, Emma took the lead role of Kim in the school production of Miss Saigon. The following year she gained a Level 4 Diploma in Musical Theatre Performance, played Julie in the school's production of Carousel and Eponine in Sheringham Little Theatre's production of Les Miserables, all whilst studying for her A Levels in English Literature, Music and Theatre Studies. 

Next month, she will be playing the role of Natalie in Next to Normal as part of the University Musical Society's Summer Showcase, and Third Boy in the Opera Society's production of The Magic Flute in The Grand Opera House, York.

After completing her undergraduate degree, Emma hopes to move to London and continue her training in musical theatre or acting.
