Thursday 15th May Curry Night –

We are delighted to be returning to the Tandoori Parlour in Thundersley. We have held four events there and Shah and his team have always looked after us so well. We are pleased to have secured the upstairs suite again as this gives us the exclusivity that enables our night to run how we want it to. We will be open from 7.00 with the food being served from 8.00.  If you are not a fan of Asian food, there is an option to have fish and chips which is a great alternative. We have been able to keep the ticket price the same as previous years at £12.00 per head. Even more good news, Patrick Byrne will be returning with his Elvis tribute show.  

Tickets Available from Ray Simpson 07989 964630 Email raysimpson3@sky.com
