Greatest Shows 1

You book and arrive – we do the rest

Dear friends
Individual seats are at a table, cabaret style in the ballroom or function suite.
NO restrictions by uncomfortable theatre style seating, first come, first served.
Come and go as you wish throughout the evening.
Usual start (doors open) 7pm non-stop through to midnight (approx).
Our shows are continuous, music from the same genre played during the short breaks to allow the artists(s) to change over on stage.
Usually plenty of dance floor – we love you to get up and boogie at any time.
Period costumes are encouraged, dress to impress if you wish, you won’t be alone.

LUCKY DRAW RAFFLES
MEET THE ARTISTS
(bring a pen, camera and a smile).

Well stocked bar at reasonable prices in same room or adjacent.
MERCHANDISE AND MEMORABILIA STALLS

Some events include stimulating & fun Pop Quiz with PRIZES

Meet new friends who enjoy the same music and have something in common, nice people, similar age, good behaviour. Some customers meet up year after year, our concerts are the first thing in their diary.
Evening meals (if applicable) are served in the hotel restaurant. Concerts are usually held during school term to avoid family child sitting responsibilities.
TELL YOUR FRIENDS about us OR send their name and email addresses and leave the rest to us.

Go back in time musically - But plan ahead & enjoy both!
