May 6th, 2022 - V.E. Day Proms Concert

We are planning an evening trip to the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne and have 53 tickets, “on reserve” at a cost of £32 each, which the Club has to pay for by 01/01/22. Before we commit Club funds, arrange coach hire and advertise the full details of the trip including the total cost per head, we are gauging the level of interest from you at this stage.

If we hire a coach, we are considering coach pick-ups at Haywards Heath and Uckfield with the additional option of self-drive for those of you that live closer to Eastbourne. We will arrange for the coach to drop us in Eastbourne with time for you to eat/drink before the show.

The V.E. Day Proms concert is on for one night only and is the ultimate musical celebration in honour of the 75th Anniversary of V.E. Day. This incredible concert show takes you on a musical journey through World War II, providing an insight in to how music played a pivotal role throughout the most extraordinary period in modern day history.

Featuring The London Gala Orchestra and exceptional live singers, One Night at the V.E. Day Proms brings back to life such popular war time songs as Vera Lynn’s “The White Cliffs of Dover” and Glenn Miller’s “In The Mood” alongside classical masterpieces such as “Land of Hope and Glory” and “Jerusalem”. This celebratory concert show is sure to have everyone waving their flags and singing along to the music that helped make Britain great!

If you are interested in this trip, please advise Sue Russell by 31st October, 2021 by email or phone and advise:

• How many tickets you would like

• Whether you would prefer to self-drive or to join the coach. If coach, please advise whether you would use Haywards Heath or Uckfield as the pick-up point.

As soon as we know whether we have enough takers for the trip, we will confirm costs and finalise the details.
