Mike Raxworthy… In just a few weeks (Saturday December 13th) we will be putting on our charity Christmas Soul Party. This year it features The Harry Court band, Pete Prescott with his funky soul band and Soul X Press with our 15 piece Blues Bro Show. It’s at St Mary in the Castle on Hastings seafront. This year we have doubled the bar staff so the booze can flow somewhat faster than last year! Tickets are only £8.50 in advance from Hastings Tourist Information Office on the seafront in Aquilla House. On the night they are £10. All of the money raised goes to St Michaels Hospice and Surviving Christmas, two very important and worthwhile local charities, so please come along and give it your support. To date we’ve managed to raise with the help of our party people, £120,000 for these charities and some local good causes have also benefitted. Doors open at 7pm and it goes till midnight.
