This week in Looking Back we remember the late great Ray King and King’s Country Club which attracted royalty and the best in entertainment acts in its heyday.

Prince Charles and Princess Anne were guests at the club which was on Pevensey Bay Road, where ASDA and the retail park now stands.

Among those treading the board at King’s were the Prince of Wales favourites The Three Degrees, Bruce Forsyth, Showaddywaddy, Opportunity Knocks singing duo Peters and Lee, 
Frankie Vaughan, Roy Castle, Jimmy Tarbuck and Marti Caine.
