Two musicians held a fundraising event at a Hampstead theatre on Sunday to help finance a £4,000 operation on their dog.
The evening at Pentameters Theatre, Heath Street, consisted of a medley of music, poetry, comedy, and storytelling by a variety of local artists.
Musicians and Hampstead residents Alice Old, 25, and Kayleigh Allenby, 26, who performed themselves, had the idea for the show after their pet Saluki, Falkor, was the victim of an attack by another dog on Hampstead Heath.
The attack left him needing surgery. Falkor’s knee was dislocated and ligaments damaged in a freak injury vets described as “very unfortunate”.
Ms Old hailed the night as a success, saying it brought the community together, even though it didn’t raise enough to pay for Falkor’s procedure.

She remained positive however, explaining the event will now become a regular fixture.
“It has started something in itself which is great,” she said.
