Al­fie’s birth­day treat

Lancashire Life - - QUIZ -

World renowned op­er­atic singer Al­fie

Boe took a break from the West End to travel back to his Lan­cashire roots for an exclusive sur­prise birth­day ap­pear­ance.

Guests at Mel­lor-based Stan­ley House Ho­tel and Spa were given a night to re­mem­ber as the singing sen­sa­tion adorned the stage to cel­e­brate the 90th birth­day of ho­tel owner Mrs Nora Walker.

Ac­claimed in his op­er­atic roles and as Jean Val­jean in the mu­si­cal the­atre ver­sion of Les Misérables, Al­fie took to the stage to treat 70 Stan­ley House guests to a glit­ter­ing per­for­mance com­pris­ing ten of his top hits plus a stun­ning ren­di­tion of ‘Happy Birth­day’.

Mrs Walker, wife of the late Fred Walker, co-founder of Walker Steel, said: ‘Al­fie’s my ab­so­lute favourite.

‘He per­formed at the Queen’s 92nd birth­day last year, so to have him head­line my cel­e­bra­tions was a real dream come true.

‘His per­for­mance was out­stand­ing. I’m so grate­ful my won­der­ful fam­ily created such a starry night of surprises.’
