With World Class musicians and dancers bringing La La Land to Life! You will be entertained in true LA style where screen will become reality! 

Urmston's Wayne Devlin, who is regarded as one of the finest Rat Pack vocalists in the U.K. will be providing the sounds of swing and jazz with renditions of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett to bring the authentic feel of Hollywood glam. 

“The Alex has been delivering the highest standards of care topatients for 35 years and this event is the perfect way to celebrate" says hospital Executive Director, Simon Shepherd.

"Despite the fact that we have the best equipped private hospital outside London, we are in the middle of an £8m investment program to ensure that we continue to offer exceptional facilities. However, it is the people that make The Alex so special – the patients that are at the heart of everything we do, the exceptional clinicians and the clinical teams that run the hospital.”
