Following the success in previous years there will be a Port tasting evening in our Royal Sovereign Suite at 7.30pm which will again be hosted by Andy Harris from Harvey’s brewery who is a fount of knowledge on the subject.

An evening like this would typically cost £25-£50 but we are offering this to our members and their guests at the following “Very Special Prices”
Members £17.50
Non-Member Guests attending with a member £20.00
If you would like to attend please book your place by either paying at the bar or phoning the Club during office hours to pay by debit or credit card. Membership numbers will need to be provided when booking for members attending to obtain the discounted rate.

The latest date bookings can be taken will be Monday 24th October but to guarantee your place please book as early as possible as numbers will be limited and this has proved to be a very popular event in the past.

AN EVENING WTH SAM HUGHES AS SIR ELTON JOHN

Sam's passion for music and performance started at school. He could often be found putting on impromptu shows and entertaining fellow students. Coupled with his love of Elton John, Sam's talents started to really blossom after leaving education as he began to develop his Tribute to Sir Elton Act, which he has now perfected. Sam has even mastered Sir Elton's unique mannerisms during his performance.

Some of his highlights to date include supporting local charity events, performing at Pride, closing a local festival and being nominated by the South East Entertainment Awards as a recognised tribute artist. 

Sam is currently the youngest UK Sir Elton John Tribute Act at just 24 years of age.
