Competition Winners meet Amanda Holden

June 4, 2019

Lucky local family The Randles won tickets to the BGT semi-final courtesy of our Patron, Amanda Holden, all in aid of our FUTURE Polka appeal.  Let’s see how they got on…


On 20 May 2019 an excited Lisa (Mum), Jessica, Sam and friend Joshua headed to the Apollo in Hammersmith to watch the live BGT semi-final courtesy of our wonderful Patron Amanda Holden. They had expected to meet Amanda, but that wasn’t quite enough for these special Polka visitors. Amanda had some other surprises in store for them..!

Winning mum Lisa Randles said: “We were so excited to have won the Britain’s Got Talent semi-final tickets! On the night we had front row seats, and Amanda’s team went out of their way to make us feel like VIPs, they were so lovely! Amanda and all of the judges were warm and friendly, and Jessica even got to sit in Simon Cowell’s chair. We can’t thank Polka and Amanda Holden enough for a really special evening. We can’t wait to see who wins BGT 2019”.

Jessica, age 12, said: “I loved every performance and especially the breath taking view from the front row! Thank you Amanda and Polka!”

Amanda Holden said: “As a Patron it is a real pleasure to support Polka Theatre with its fundraising campaign and give the Randles family a special experience of BGT as competition winners. If you would also like to donate to Polka’s redevelopment campaign please go to

A huge thank you to Amanda, and to the Randles for being such wonderful competition winners!
