The first sell-out performance of the brand-new musical “Walk Right Back”, the Everly Brothers Story, written by the producers of successful That’ll Be The Day, delivered an entertaining concert at the Folly Farm Theatre on Tuesday 3rd April 2018. The concert-based musical benefitted local charity, Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.
Event Organiser Phil Thompson MBE said, “We were honored to host the first ever performance of this wonderful show before it went on the official tour throughout England. A huge thanks to the producers of the That’ll Be The Day for providing the show, and of course to Folly Farm for their continued support.”
Proceeds from the concert given to the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home amounted to £9,993.00.
Paul Sartori’s, Community Fundraiser Toni Dorkings said, “We were delighted that Phil Thompson MBE was able to secure this concert in aid of Paul Sartori. The show was wonderful and the funds raised from the proceeds were amazing.”

Notes to Editors:
Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service:
· is particularly keen to dispel the belief that it is a ‘cancer charity’ as this deters people with other life-limiting conditions from contacting the Paul Sartori Foundation (32% have a non-cancer diagnosis)
· operates an open referral system with around 15% of referrals from patients, family and friends. The biggest referral group is District Nurses, followed by Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialists and hospital staff
· was established in memory of Father Paul Sartori, a much loved local priest, who recognised a need for hospice care, but unfortunately died of cancer at the age of 39. The Foundation was set up in his memory and provides care to people with any or no faith, and not just Catholics
· charity was registered in 1982 and celebrates its 35th anniversary during 2017-2018
