YOUNGSTERS from across Hampshire will be showcasing their talents at a variety stage show for charity.

The Mayflower theatre, in Southampton, will host Wessex Heartbeat’s High 5 Appeal Variety Show, hosted by comedian Mike Osman. The Daily Echo-backed appeal aims to raise £500,000 over the next 12 months to build a specialist heart unit at Southampton General Hospital for teenagers and young people.

Audiences will be entertained on March 10 by acts including the E Minor Pop Academy and the SJ Academy of Dance.

Tickets cost from £15 for adults and £10 for children.
