Variety Show to Show Support to NHS

Music and Laughter  The Best Medicine for Special NHS Show


"We've all been through a lot and this show is just what the Doctor ordered "
Ian Craigs



Northumberland Freemasons have pledged their support to the NHS by sponsoring a special variety show to say thank you to NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers. 

Masons throughout England and Wales are leading the worlds ‘first' celebration of NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers Day on 5 July 2021 and here in the North East, Northumberland Freemasons are getting behind a variety show at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House which will close the day’s celebrations.

The unique and special day is dedicated to the NHS, Social Care and those that work on the frontline - workers who have saved so many lives during the pandemic and it’s also to remember those workers who lost their lives helping others. 

X Factor winner, musical theatre star and number one artist, Joe McElderry has announced that he will appear at the special live streamed show where he will perform a number of songs from his repertoire to say thank you to the NHS workers. He is looking forward to the event and the chance to say thank you to everyone who helped in the fight against COVID. 

“I’ve got family members who are nurses and before I became a singer I was fascinated by medicine and wanted to be a paramedic. The NHS is free at the point of access and we are all very lucky to have that. Now more than ever we realise what a savour it is and that’s one of the reasons why I want to say thank you to every front-line worker for their hard work.  

“The NHS heroes deserve some light entertainment as it’s been incredibly hard for them and I’m really excited to be able to bring a bit of fun and happiness to everyone,” said Joe.

Joe will be joined by several other soon to be announced well-known local and national stars across the live programme and through pre-recorded messages of support.

The event will be live streamed free of charge with any donations going to NHS charities. 

As well as an online audience, it is hoped that the theatre will be filled with representatives from the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Trust, Northumbria Healthcare NHS, North East Ambulance Service, Great North Air Ambulance Service and Northumbria Blood Bikes. Other key workers and their families will also be invited as a small token of appreciation for their hard work and dedication. 

Ian Craigs, the head of Northumberland Freemasons, which covers Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle, was delighted to support the event. 

“The United Grand Lodge of England and ourselves here in Northumberland are pleased to be able to support this event as it gives us all a chance to say “thank you’ to everyone in the NHS and social care for looking after us in the most difficult of times.

“The show is a great way for people to enjoy themselves and at the same time raise much-needed funds for NHS related charities. We have all been through so much and this performance may be just what the doctor ordered.”
