Hollyoaks star gives back in charity show

Nicole Barber-Lane is making her solo debut in Manchester this Spring!

Nicole Barber-Lane, aka Hollyoaks’ Myra McQueen, visited the Smooth Radio studio to share details of her solo singing debut in a charity concert in central Manchester this March. Proceeds will be shared between two incredibly hardworking charities; the National Autistic Society and Variety, the children’s charity.
The show, entitled ’The Strength of a Woman’, celebrates and champions wonderful women everywhere and the people in their lives that support them.
The night, which will take place of the 28th of March at The Birdcage in Manchester city centre, will include a mix of classic and contemporary pop hits which reinforce the theme of the show. Music will be provided by a phenomenal big band, with the prestigious Northern Dance Academy providing tailored choreography and assisting vocals coming from rising star Alex Lees.
Nicole Barber-Lane commented: “I am beyond excited for The Strength of a Woman. Although I love acting, singing has also been a passion of mine, and to be able to support such amazing charities through my show is fantastic. I want everyone to come and enjoy themselves and to give them the best time, and all for a good cause.”
Kate Vickers, Head of Supporter Fundraising at the National Autistic Society, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that Nicole has chosen to raise money for us and we are so grateful to her for creating this event.“Our charity relies on the generosity of the public so we can continue to support autistic people and their families. Any donation we receive will go towards making a world that works for the 700,000 autistic people across the UK.”
David Jones, Lancashire Chairman of Variety, the children’s charity, added: “We’re so pleased and grateful for the generosity of everyone involved, and we wish Nicole all the best for her big show. She’s a talented lady with a very big heart!”
