A fantastic evening of music is promised for Beccles later this year as the Public Hall lines up some great acts following its refurbishment.

Back by popular demand on Friday, October 2 is local talented singer and musician Mark Anthony and his Funky Stuff Band.

They will be treating the audience to a soul-charged evening of upbeat dance music and convivial company at the Public Hall.

Mark’s band comprises some of this region’s best musicians playing soul, Motown and funky music such as The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and The Jackson Five.

Events coordinator Sue Bergin said: “The band works across the UK as well as locally and we are thrilled to welcome them all back to the Public Hall for an upbeat party-feel evening when you don’t want the music to stop.”
