Gear up for Gaddesby’s 1960s party evening

Have your say

Being bored over the bank holiday weekend is no longer an excuse as the village of Gaddesby is staging a 1960s party event on its cricket field.

Visitors are invited to attend Saturday’s event which features live music, disco, licensed bar and a hog roast.

Other attractions include a giant marquee and a raffle in aid of Wings for Life, a charity which is actively helping to find a cure for spinal chord injuries.

The 1960s night, which starts at 7pm, is also set to have a one-off appearance from local musicians Colonel Cheney’s Dance and Darts Club Band.

Put together specially for the event they will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo to honour a local hero.

Tickets are £25 per person and available from Lance on (01664) 840550, Sam on 07748 084529 or The Cheney Arms.

Camping is available for the night at £5 per pitch and pre-booking is essential to reserve a plot.

On Sunday a charity cricket match is to be held. Those who wish to take part should meet at the Cheney Arms at 11.30am so that teams can be drawn at noon. To participate the cost is £3 and players must be over 14.

Tickets are selling out fast so early purchases are recommended to avoid dissapointment.
