THE multi-award-winning folk band Show of Hands will be playing in Thorncombe on Saturday, June 16 to raise funds for the village’s sports and social club.
Sponsored by local skin care company Lovegrove Essentials, the popular band all headline the mid-summer event.
Doors open at 7 pm and the evening kicks off at 8pm with the lively local band Smokey Jean & the Limes. There will be a raffle during the interval with some superb prizes and the headline act Show of Hands, will take to the stage at 9.15pm.
As well as hosting a year-round programme of football and cricket matches, and team practice sessions, Thorncombe Sports and Social Club is regularly used for live music events and mini-festivals, so book a cab or bring a tent and enjoy a drink or two at the bar.
Promoter Hannah Lovegrove said: “Live music plays such an important part in all our lives and for the second time Lovegrove Essentials is delighted to sponsor a mid-summer concert with the hugely popular, internationally acclaimed band Show of Hands.
“Proceeds will be going to the local cricket club and supporting the social club, which is in need of a good coat of paint and some new curtains!
“The club is a great location for events, and a social pillar of our rural community. From here you can watch the sunset across Somerset, Devon and Dorset, with a cold glass of something in your hand.”
Tickets cost £18 each and are available exclusively through the website www.lovegroveessentials.com.
