THE CHILDREN'S ROYAL VARIETY PERFORMANCE
28 August, 1982





     A star studded spectacular presented by LOUIS BENJAMIN in aid of the National Society for the Prvention of Cruelty to Children was held recently at the Dominion Theatre, London, in the presence of her Royal Highness the PRINCESS MARGARET, Countess of Snowdon, who is President of the NSPCC.
     Such was the success of the first Children's Royal Variety Performance last year that it has now become an annual event. London Weekend cameras recorded the two-hour show, which was designed especially for children and their parents.
     The many entertainers taking part had a special appeal for children who were also strongly featured in the line up. Also the show featured special sequences from the current West End productions of The Sound of Music with PETULA CLARK and the Von Trapp Children and from the hit musical Cats with BONNIE LANGFORD and JOHN THORNTON.
     The sparkling line-up of guest stars included RUSS ABOTT, pop group ALTERED IMAGES, CANNON and BALL, CHAS and DAVE, BERNIE CLIFTON, KEITH HARRIS and ORVILLE, THE KRANKIES, JON PERTWEE as Worzel Gummidge and SHAKIN' STEVENS.
