    All the performers are giving their services in support of St Wilfrid’s Hospice. We are extremely grateful to Richard Alston, CBE, one of the most celebrated and revered figures of British contemporary dance, for agreeing to host the evening. He is Artistic Director of The Place, the UK’s premier centre for contemporary dance, and internationally recognised as one of the most inspiring and influential choreographers in British dance. Richard holds an honorary MA from the University of Chichester. This gala is a celebration in memory of my beloved husband Tony, who was a great supporter of contemporary dance and, especially, of dance at the University of Chichester. He died in April 2012. In his last months we were both sustained by the wonderful staff of St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
