Acton Community Forum (ACF) has been working with local events company, Jack Morton Worldwide, and students from Acton High School to produce Spotlight ’09.

Spotlight ’09 is a dazzling Performing Arts Festival to be held on Friday 27th November to celebrate our diverse cultures and bring the community together. With an expected audience of 500, it is the first time that the festival is being produced on this scale and has involved local students and a local events company throughout.  

The festival will take place at Acton High School and will showcase a mix of 18 local groups and performers all MC’d by Antoine Luta and Tuup. The acts include the Stardust Steel Orchestra, Jiving Lindy Hoppers and Theatre Studio West, XLNT Entertainment, Nexos Latino Americanos and many more. It is a unique chance to discover and enjoy exciting, fresh talent that is right on the community’s doorstep.

ACF plays a vital role in supporting an extensive range of community projects and voluntary groups including the Acton Carnival, free holiday summer schemes throughout Acton, youth activities and an exciting new intergenerational programme.

Jack Morton and everyone involved in the event, from artists and performers through to suppliers are offering their time, services and expertise for free in order to make this event possible.

Steve Flynn, ACF Manager commented:

‘Spotlight ’09 is a great opportunity to enjoy a unique evening of fantastic entertainment that will showcase the diversity and talent of our local communities and is definitely not to be missed.  The support of Jack Morton has really raised the bar and it shows what can be done when the whole community comes together.’
