Dress to take centre stage at SuBo show

Have your say

AN exhibition on singing sensation Susan Boyle is to be held at her local theatre after fans snapped up one of her dresses for more than £6000.

Bosses at the Regal Theatre in Bathgate, West Lothian – where she is patron – are planning to pay tribute to the star after generous fans donated the dress to the attraction.

They bought the silver grey silk dress, which the singer had donated to the Prince’s Trust, for £6532 and now the Regal plans to make it the centrepiece of an exhibition chronicling the life of the Britain’s Got Talent star.

The theatre is now the hunt for other pieces of SuBo memorabilia to put on display.

Stephen Darroch, theatre manager, said: “We had been trying to think of ideas for a tribute to Susan ever since she kindly agreed to become our patron earlier this year.

“We were contacted by the ladies who got together to buy her dress and they said it they would like to donate it to us.

“It was a very kind gesture and we decided that we should put it on display and make it part of an exhibition on Susan.

“We are just currently putting together plans and it will hopefully happen later this year or next year to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the theatre.”
