The Royal Theatrical Fund - a most worthy cause set up to offer all sorts of aid and assistance to people from the acting profession through many difficult life events - hosted a very special evening at The Theatre Royal, Haymarket in honour of their patron, Queen Elizabeth II, turning 90 this year and also to celebrate the longevity of the fund itself. Originally set up by Charles Dickens, the fund is now presided over by Shakespearean actor Robert Lindsey and boasts many leading names in the industry as Trustees. A Right Royal Knees Up was performed at The Haymarket on 5th June 2016 and celebrated with a cake from My Fair Cakery. With a choice of traditional fruit cake laced with Brandy or Sicilian Lemon Madeira cake, the decoration comprised a mix of features to celebrate both events, from the Union Jack and Queen Elizabeth quilling to the helping hands of The Royal Theatrical Fund, the cake then took pride of place on the original Charles Dickens table.
