BRIAN Conley - one of Britain’s best-loved entertainers and Eastenders star - is bringing an unmissable charity evening of "fun and frolics" to the Cliffs Pavilion all in aid of a sick five year old girl.

An Evening With Brian Conley And Special Guests will be coming to the Southend venue next month as a "one off charity show", giving all proceeds to help Arianna 'The Real Life Wonder Woman', as she has been dubbed by online supporters.

A spokesman for the show said: "Arianna is a beautiful, funny and kind-hearted girl who loves dressing up as a princess or in superhero costumes and playing with her two younger sisters.

"In November Arianna was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma and her family are now fundraising so that she can access potentially life-saving treatment costing hundreds of thousands of pounds.

"Showcasing his many talents, audiences can expect an evening packed full of songs and laughter all in aid of the charity Arianna, The Real Life Wonder Woman.

"But remember, don’t bring the kids!"

Neuroblastoma is a rare and aggressive childhood cancer that has a 40 - 50 per cent chance of long-term survival at diagnosis.

On Arianna's Just Giving page, it states how Arianna started to experience slight upper back pain iIn July 2021.

At the time it was put down to having a new bed. The pain disappeared for a short time but in mid-November Arianna's symptoms worsened and the pain moved to her lower back.

After going back and forth to the GP and A&E a number of times; including three times in just one day, on November 19, the family were devastated when doctors discovered a tumour on her kidney.

On November 26, Arianna was officially diagnosed with stage 4, high-risk neuroblastoma.

Her parents were told the shocking news that her cancer had spread to multiple bones and her bone marrow.

Arianna's parents are currently fundraising for potentially lifesaving treatment, either to get their daughter into remission or to try and keep the cancer away if her frontline treatment does go to plan.

This could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Brian Conley is a familiar face at the Cliffs Pavilion, having starred in a number productions and pantos there.

An Evening With Brian Conley and Special Guests will take place at the Southend venue in Station Road, on Sunday July 3 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available from from £24.50
