BBC LOOK EAST presenter Stewart White hosts a gala chat show for BBC Children in Need on Sunday October 25 at the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

Expect a night of music, comedy and conversation as he is joined by cast of stars from the East region including the fabulous Opera Babes. Always a favourite, the babes are back in beautiful harmony with a sample of songs from their new album.

Top Cambridge tenor Ben Thapa, who rose to fame with the X-Factor stars G4, will also be performing, as well as revealing some X-Factor trade secrets.

Neil Innes, the man known as the seventh python who led the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and the Rutles will be sharing his music and anecdotes, and there's also comedy from Britain's brightest young stand-up poet Luke Wright, fresh from a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival.

Five times Olympian Mark Foster will take the audience behind the scenes at the Olympic Games. He'll also have plenty of stories from the green room at Strictly Come Dancing.

The line-up also includes Cambridge football legend and former Manchester United star Dion Dublin as you've never heard him before!

The band Juliet the Sun fronted by Northants cricketer Steve Crook will be performing their anthem 'Time for Heroes' which was the musical inspiration behind England's Ashes win over Australia. The players listened to the song in the dressing room to psych themselves up before each match.

Stewart promises not to sing this year but the word is that fellow Look East presenters, led by weather forecaster Julie Reinger, have been spotted rehearsing with Pudsey.

The event will be filmed with highlights being broadcast on Look East the following night and during the Children in Need Appeal Night on November 20.

Proceeds from ticket sales, including the booking fee, go to Children in Need. The arts theatre is being donated free of charge, and all the stars are giving their time and talent for free.
