On Friday 8th May 2015, Air Commodore Charles Clarke OBE attended the Gala Performance of Bomber’s Moon at Trafalgar Studios, London.

Cast and crew were delighted to welcome Mr Clarke on the 70th Anniversary of VE Day, while Friday’s lucky audience were moved to hear him speak after the show. A charity collection was held for RAF Benevolent Fund, which you can also donate to here.

Engine House Theatre wishes to thank Mr Clarke and RAF Benevolent Fund for all their help in marking this special occasion.
