THE Grand Pier will host Des Henly’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus later this month after owner Kerry Michael invited them back.

The legendary FUMBLE group took a break from their traditional festive fiesta last Christmas for the first time in 24 years but will be back with a bang on December 28.

They have an enviable musical CV having toured alongside international stars Chuck Berry and David Bowie over the years and three of them, Des Henly, Mario Ferrari and Barry Pike will lead the evening’s entertainment.

This year they will be joined by Boulevard Swing, an 18-piece swing band who will open the show with a number of Christmas classics that are bound to get even Scrooge dancing and singing.

The entertainment starts at 7pm and tickets, priced £12.50, are available from the pier box office or online at www.grandpier.co.uk
