Jess Conrad OBE will be offering a delicious Slice of the 60s on Friday, August 15 at 8pm at Beccles Public Hall.
Supported by talented girl duo, The Sequins, it’s sure to be a really entertaining night.
“Working as Event Coordinator for Beccles Public Hall, life is very much about building up contacts in the entertainment business as well as exploring new event ideas within our committed huddle of friends and contacts in the hall events group,” said Sue Bergin.
“We are fortunate to be good friends with Kenny Cantor who has enjoyed a massive show business career. Kenny approached us to let us know that Jess would be coming over to East Anglia in August to play at Cromer Pier and Gorleston and suggested we contact Jess to see if he would consider performing at Beccles Public Hall.
“What a great idea! Jess is charming and accommodating and only too pleased to help us add a sprinkle of legendary showbiz stardust at the Hall,” she said.
Tickets are £10 for this great night out.

“The Public Hall dance floor is a classic oak sprung design which is so fantastic for dancing and particularly good for the soul dancers to glide in true Northern Soul style” said Sue.
Tickets are £6 for an evening of dancing to the evocative and magnetic soul sounds of the 50s and 60s.
