A Sundays in the Bar special with the Con Club All-Stars AND the Christmas Draw.
This is the final "Sundays in the Bar" gig of 2018 and will feature many of the local musicians who have played at the Con Club over the years - all in the course of one afternoon in the bar. It's an extended version and includes the club's Grand Christmas Draw.

There'll be a main band featuring John Marsh, Kate Turvey, Pete Messer, David Bott, Paul Andrew plus very special guest singer Kev Whatley, all of whom have played at club many times over the years, and in addition there'll be cameo performances from the Contenders (Steve Williams, John Collins, Pete Messer and Mick Hawksworth), the reformed Koils (Fran Galpin, Jim Healey and Mick Hawksworth), Martian Jim (Jim Healey and John Marsh), Gabriella Romano, Chippy Mobbs, Hanna Burchell, Louis May, The Odd Couple (Jack Kellett and John Marsh with vocal assistance from Kate) and to cap it all off local hero John May with one or two of his best songs.
But the show-stopper is undoubtedly going to be the Five O-clock Shadows (Andy Banks, Andy Thomas, Nick Benjamin, Mick Hawksworth) and Kev standing in for Cliff at the last minute! You've got to see this.
40 songs, 20 performers, in the Con Club bar, all in the course of one afternoon. It could be chaos, but one thing it won't be is boring! And it's free! Everyone's welcome. Come along and join in the fun.
The performers are donating all their fees to the local St Peter & St James Hospice.
3:30 - 7:30 pm FREE ENTRY All welcome. Don't miss it!
