The Bottle Alley Sound & Light Experience – St Leonards On Sea 28th September 2018

Sid Saunders… If you want some fun before the winter is upon us pop down to Bottle Alley tomorrow night for a wonderful sound and light experience. It runs from 7pm until 10pm.This is a free event but a bucket collection will be made to help recover some of the expense of the event.You can view it from the beach as it will be low tide but I think the pier would be better as the restaurant will be open for meals until 7pm, hot drinks until 9pm, the bar until 10pm and the chip shop will be serving until 9pm. You will also have the benefit of toilets on the pier. No rain is forecast but it will be cold so wrap up warm.
The organisers are also holding a photo competition in conjunction with the Hastings Observer that is open to all except professional photographers.
Take photos with your smartphone or camera then send your best one as a jpeg to quoting Bottle Alley photo competition, the Observer will judge the photos. The winning photo will be published in the paper and the winner will receive £50 cash plus a meal of their choice for four with the compliments of the pier company in the pier restaurant.
The revolutionary double deck promenade was built in the early 1930s by Sidney Little. It’s half a mile long stretching from Warrior Square to the pier with the rear walls on the lower deck are faced with glass from broken bottles hence the name Bottle Alley.
