Joseph Rowntree Theatre – March 2016

RULE THE WORLD took to the stage at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre, York in March 2016 to help us raise money for the The Children’s E-Hospital.  The band recreated the Take That magic perfectly, mimicking not only the sound, but also the look of the real band!  We had such fantastic feedback we couldn’t resist booking them for further charity nights!


On the night, Rule The World shared the stage with York Hotshots Cheer and Dance and Bettany School Of Dance.  All of the dancers performed free of charge and gave numerous hours to practicing the outstanding routines!


If you missed out on this event, Rule The World will return to the Joseph Rowntree Theatre on the 2nd and 3rd October!




We’d like to offer our thanks to the following people for their part in making such a successful night;

  • Rule The World – Matt Hall, Dan Maines & Gabriel Keogh,
  • Tribute Acts Management for providing the band,
  • Bettany School Of Dance and York Hotshots for performing,
  • Darren Bebb for the poster and flyer artwork,
  • Jennie Horsfield and Anna Twose for choreography,
  • Gill Town for arranging the costumes for the dancers,
  • Domino’s Pizza for sponsoring the dancers costumes,
  • All the volunteers from the Joseph Rowntree Theatre for their hard work.

Finally we’d like to thank everyone who bought a ticket and came along to support the charity on both nights!  We hope to see you all again in October!


The children’s e-hospital was originally designed as a web based service to allow parents to access consultant level paediatric advice and thus reduce unnecessary referrals to GP and hospital. However, in September 2015 we got involved in the refugee crisis in Greece. We had hoped to use the on-line video consultancy service to help the medical teams on the ground but soon realised that there was a lack of specialist paediatric skills and paediatric specific equipment. Hence the idea of a “pop-up children’s hospital” came about. We have identified what is needed and estimate that approximately £20K will pay for one pop-up children’s hospital. This will provide the right equipment to help treat refugee children in this crisis. Additionally, the pop-up hospital will act as a base for a refugee immunisation programme to try and limit the spread of common infectious disease.
