SEACROFT ‘DOUBLE’ FESTIVAL!

Friday 26th – 29th August 2016, from £169 per person 3 nights half board.

We have found a great venue to re-run our ‘Double Whammy’ Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll Festival at The Seacroft Holiday Village, Beach Road, Hemsby, Norfolk NR29 4HR.   We have three performance areas for blues, rock ‘n’ roll and acoustic and jam sessions, and the venue is less than a five-minute walk from the sea!   Prices from just £169 per person 3 nights half board.   Superior accommodation available for a modest supplement.

NOTE:  We are sorry to announce that Angela Brown & The Mighty 45′s have had to cancel.  The band have not been able to contact Angela for some time, and we believe this is as a result of ill-health.  However, we are delighted to have been able to book Sari Schorr & The Engine Room as a replacement.  New Yorker Sari is getting fantastic reviews for her fabulous voice and on-stage personality, as well as her brilliant band.  A recent review in Blues Matters describes Sari as ‘a gift to all of us from the Blues Gods’.   We’re sure you going to love her!  Meantime we wish Angela well, and hope that she reappears on the blues scene in the near future.

PLUS Free entry to the Boogaloo Rock ‘n’ Roll Festival, with a great line-up including The Lennerockers, The Firebirds, Darrel Higham & The Enforcers, and more!

To book:

All chalets have now sold out, however we have ample capacity to sell at least 200 weekend passes for our Festival at Seacroft, so we recommend that you book your choice of local accommodation and then get in touch to buy a weekend pass at £70 per person.  This pass will include all the music but exclude food (there are plenty of options to buy food at Seacroft, as well as takeaway options and local cafes and restaurants).    The easiest option is probably to book via www.bookings.com.   However, we have done some research and put together a list of accommodation options.  Please follow this link:  Seacroft Accommodation Options for various accommodation alternatives, some in walking distance.  At the time of writing there is still accommodation available at Hemsby Beach, which is right next door.  You can give them a call on 01493 384466.

Please note that Seacroft have plans to demolish one of the ballrooms at the end of the year, which we believe will make it impossible for us to run our double festival next year. We will review options available, but we would urge you to book this year’s event (ie don’t wait for next year in case it doesn’t happen!).   Meantime if you know of any venues with two ballrooms please get in touch!

Torquay is also a lovely place to stay with superb scenery, friendly locals, quirky shops and great weather.  No wonder it’s just been voted as the third best place in the country to stay after London and Edinburgh! Additional nights are available from £60 per person for dinner, bed and breakfast so you can make a week of it!   We would highly recommend this option as Torquay is FAB!
