Meanwhile, the concert in the Walter Rose Room will start at 8.40pm with a short spot from compere, Kitty Vernon, followed by a 20 minute spot from Joe Allen and Friends and then two 45 minutes spots from the main guest of the evening, Jeff Warner.
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8pm. and an admission charge of £11, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both!
