Raising money for classrooms in Kenya @ Burgess Hill Rugby Club
Jul 27 @ 7:30 pm – 11:30 pm

Jack Woodford My story

I have the opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives in Kenya. I have been blessed with a fantastic education in a safe, comfortable environment and to be honest I have taken this for granted. I now have the chance to give something back by raising £300 to pay towards a classroom in Kenya and then visit Kenya myself and work as part of a team building the classrooms. Schools in Kenya often suffer from having inadequate buildings; some have to use mud huts or even simply hold classes under a tree. I will be working at Kibagenge Primary School in Kitale in July 2019 where I know our hard work will make a difference to some young lives.

To raise the money needed for materials I am holding a charity live music and disco night at Burgess Hill RFC, Poveys Close, Burgess Hill on Friday the 27th of July 2018. We will kick things off with some live music from Eclectic Duo at 7.30pm and then we will dance the night away with a disco for all ages and I will also be running a raffle for which I hope to source some amazing prizes, again I will keep you updated. Prices will be £5 per adult and £2 per child and you can buy your ticket by making the donation on this page and leaving your name and contact details so tickets can be emailed to you. Raffle tickets will be sold on the night at £1 per strip.

That’ll Be The Day – 2018 @ Pavilion Theatre

That’ll Be The Day, the UK’s premiere Rock n Roll variety show, will be returning to the Pavilion Theatre for several dates across 2018..

The production is a celebration of popular music throughout the 50’s, 60’s and 70s which combines live music with comic sketches, performed by a large diverse cast.

The first origins of That’ll Be The Day can be traced back to 1985, when a variety show called ‘The Happy Days of Rock n Roll’ was launched. Since then the show has taken many forms, and has had a variety of talented performs come and go. With Worthing local Trevor Payne at the helm of the show since its origin, the production recently celebrated its 30th Anniversary tour.

Writer, Producer and star of the show Trevor Payne says “Leading up to 1986 I had begun to realise I had to change direction. Although successful, my act at the time ‘Fizzical’ had no long term future. When Fizzical were invited to be part of a Rock & Roll package show in 1985 it wasn’t long before I had the idea which would turn into T.B.T.D. Over the next few years we nursed it and rehearsed it. I’ve now directed 32 editions and 31 Xmas shows! I’ve enjoyed the ride and still have the best of times on stage. It’s a pleasure to work with a bunch of talented people which makes my job easier.

It’s always a challenge to change the show every year but it’s been one of the main reasons for TBTD’s continued success. Change is good, how else could we have progressed? As for retirement I’m not considering it. I remember meeting the great Bobby Charlton in Malta, we were having a chat after playing tennis and he said his one regret was retiring too early. He said being a manager was the next best thing but nothing gives you the thrill of playing. I won’t make that mistake!
