Rotarians to host a spectacular Christmas event

A CHRISTMAS Spectacular will be put on at the Winter Garden on December 17 by the Eastbourne Rotarians.

Children from the local schools and dance schools will be performing along with Eastbourne Gilbert and Sullivan Society, The Salvation Army Band and a ballroom dancing school.

There will also be a performance with the variety show by solo singer June Mullins.

In the second half there will be a traditional carol concert led by Eastbourne Choral Society and the audience will be able to have a sing-a-long.

The rotarians put on a Christmas performance every year but 2011’s show will have more variety.

Rotary club member Christine Haniver is organising the event and will be compere for the eveing. Stella Blond, who was compere and producer fo the show for many years, has retired.

Christine, who has a history of theatre, said, “We are keeping the Christmas spirit but making it more than a carol concert this year.

“I hope people have a jolly good time while raising money for local charities at the same time.”

The performances take place at 2.30pm and 7pm on December 17.

Tickets are £7 and £6 for concessions. A family ticket for two adults and two children is also available for £20.
