Now in its sixth year, and sponsored by Seaton's Solicitors, the organizers are delighted to announce that Gretton shall once again be hosting the popular Rock 'n' Roll with Laughter show.
Steve Ashcroft and Martin Lewis provide the tunes ranging from The Beatles, The Searchers and The Drifters though to Rod Stewart, Carole King, Neil Diamond and John Denver. The comedy comes courtesy of Doug Parker, a well-known Midlands stand-up comic, and proof that you don’t have to be ‘blue’ to be funny.
Taking place at Gretton Village Hall on Sunday 30th August, starting at 7.30pm with a licensed bar until 11pm, tickets cost £10 and are available from Gretton Post Office and Stores. All proceeds from this show will go to the Travers Foundation.
