Rottingdean Terraces on Stage

Well they seem to have cracked it, for here we are on the terraces at the start of a full summer programme for 2012.

Today we had a band to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee sponsored by Rottingdean Parish Council, Rottingdean Trade, Business and Professional Association and Rottingdean Arts and PARC.

The concert was in aid of Help the Heroes and was packed, all seats taken and the overflow sitting on the surrounding walls.

The Mayor of Brighton opened the proceedings. Dr Roy Wales and other dignitaries offered words of support.

                                                                     

 The Band and Corps of Drums of The Royal Logistic Corps then commenced their performance. 

    

                   

Loyal blog fans may remember that my son Professor Paul Perrin with his Punch and Judy show was one of the performers who helped to launch the Rottingdean Terraces stage last summer.

Isn’t it wonderful the space is now firmly established and I see we have a varied summer programme on offer including music, theatre and a jazz concert so lots of fun yet to come.

But I don’t see a return visit of Paul’s Mr Punch!

 “What a pity, what a pity.”

But Paul and Mr. Punch were up at the ‘Big Grin’ in Covent Garden to celebrate Mr Punch’s 350th birthday a few weeks ago, nothing but party, party, party. I’ll be glad when it is all over and the washing up’s done says Judy!
