Our Easter 2019 show is another first for FCT with second-time director Ben King taking the helm to direct one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s lesser known works (a brilliant one nonetheless).

Whistle Down The Wind features a massive UK number one hit for Boyzone “No Matter What” and, performed by FCT’s chorus, it is a heart-stopping moment in a beautiful show penned by none other than Bat Out Of Hell‘s Jim Steinman.

Tickets £13 A  £9 C  Family £35 2A 2C.

It’s at Edinburgh Academy, Hamilton Place, 10 – 13 April at 7.30 with a matinee on Saturday 13th at 2.30 (All Tickets £8).

Chris Lewis, Founding Father of FCT. A Tribute.

Chris.jpg

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you of the passing, yesterday, 10th July 2018, of Chris Lewis.

Chris is a giant in the history of FCT.

He was the groundsman at Trinity Secondary and was responsible for finding our beloved Bangholm, but, more importantly, with a small gang of volunteers was one of the founders of FCT itself and worked with us from day one.

Not only that, his extended family have been lifelong FCT volunteers.   They include his daughter Geraldine (and her husband and son, Angelo and Matthew, Deponio) and his son, Philip (and Philip’s daughter Kerry and son Michael, as well as Kerry’s daughter Kali).  So four generations of Lewis’s, and of course, Steve Phair.

That’s quite some legacy.

Chris has supported FCT from its very inception and was a staunch friend to the very end and could always be seen, walking stick in hand latterly, at each and every FCT show.

Chris could always be relied upon to voice his opinions and was welcome at many an AGM and at many, many a social occasion in the early days where he, Peter Gorman and Vic Laing formed a formidable ‘Stary’ trio.  It’s fair to say they did not always agree with one another’s opinions but together were the very backbone of FCT.  Their good natured banter was responsible for thrashing out many of FCT’s key decisions and they established and policed FCT’s unique, and much admired, culture and ethos.

Chris, affectionately known to so many of us for so many years, will be deeply missed and our condolences go out to Geraldine, Philip, Di and their families.

Goodbye Chris.  Love from all of us at FCT.

Oggy, Oggy, Oggy, Oy, Oy, Oy, Ya Beauty!
