A Sidcup drama college’s performance of Patrick Marber’s Three Days in the Country has raised over £500 for Parkinson’s UK.

Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, whose alumni include actors Gary Oldman and Doctor Who’s Tom Baker, annually donates proceeds from a public performance to the Mayor of Bexley’s chosen charity.

This year, final year acting and actor musicianship students raised a record amount of £530.

Students from the college’s school of design, management and technical arts, who produced costumes, constructed the set and operated lighting and sound, also showcased their talents - including an indoor rainstorm and flying drone scene.

Rose Bruford College’s acting principal Dr. Andrew Walker, said: “Once again we are delighted to be able to support the Mayor of Bexley’s charity appeal. On behalf of the cast and production team and everyone at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, I would like to thank the audience for their generous contributions to a fantastic cause.”
