Woking & Sam Beare Hospices – Bobby Davro Gala Spectacular at the New Victoria Theatre
In aid of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, stand-up comedian Bobby Davro is set to return to the New Victoria Theatre in Woking for his 10th Annual Gala Spectacular on Sunday 27th October 2019 at 7pm.
Bobby will as in other years be appearing with a great selection of stars from the world of entertainment, including Comedy, Music & Variety. It will be a fantastic night that you won’t want to miss.
Please note: the photos on this page are from previous years to illustrate a typical Bobby Davro gala for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices. The artists vary each year, so those in the photos may not be appearing this year.
Bobby regularly visits the Woking Hospice to say hello to patients and some of their relatives in Day Care as well as taking a tour of the ward.
The photo below shows one of his visits before his show in a prior year. A natural with fans, he brightened the days of all at the Hospices by cracking jokes and posing for photos, with hugs and kisses on the cheek for all.
Since his mother passed away at the Hospices, Bobby has been a steadfast advocate of the work of the charity, and puts on a show every year to raise money for us.
He speaks about his connection to the Hospices, saying: “my mother was so lucky to have been cared for at Sam Beare and this show is the least I can do to say thank you to the Hospices. I’m proud to be supporting them.”
Support Bobby’s show and help raise money for the Hospices at the same time. Make sure you book your seats soon as the tickets are selling fast.
The star-studded line up is being confirmed over the coming weeks.

Woking & Sam Beare Hospices is a patient-centred charity that delivers specialist palliative care to adult patients of all ages who have life-limiting and terminal illnesses. We cover the North West Surrey region, providing free of charge holistic care and support services for patients, their families and carers. Each year we care for over 2000 patients, their families and carers both in our hospice and their own homes (where over 70% of our care is delivered) enabling patient choice and the best quality of life.
We care for adults of all ages with a wide range of life limiting conditions such as cancer, heart disease, Motor Neurone Disease (MND), chronic pulmonary conditions, Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We help patients to manage their symptoms, which are often complex and why they require the expertise of our Clinical Nurse Specialists and specialist doctors.
Our services enable us to offer our patients holistic care, which means we offer practical, emotional, social and spiritual support as well as managing their medical needs. We offer day care services where patients receive assessments, treatments and therapies, as well as emotional and spiritual support. We also deliver counselling for our patients and their families, including child bereavement services and school support programmes.
We are a charity, and while we receive some government funding, around 75% of what we deliver is funded through our charity shops and fundraising activities. We could not do this without the generosity of all of our supporters, volunteers and the local community.
