 Presidents Night
The Sneakers
with support from Harriet Brixey
Saturday 6th May 2017, 7pm

Presidents Night will be a great evening of the very best music featuring popular local band The Sneakers and talented soloist Harriet Brixey the Somerset Event Singer. We’ll be raising money on the night to support Midsomer Norton Illuminated Carnival, the largest and most glittering event in the area during an evening hosted by our new President Steve Collins who was previously Chair of the charity for the last ten years.

The Sneakers are a legendary local band with a passion for lively performances of the very best 60’s music. Band members are Paul on drums, Billy on bass and vocals and Dave rhythm guitar and vocals – One not to miss

Harriet Brixey the Somerset Events Singer just loves to sing, she’s well known as a seasoned Carnivalite so we’re especially pleased she’s agreed to perform at our Presidents Night. She’s a very capable and talented singer with performances including front of curtain at the prestigious Bridgwater Concert series.

It’s all set to be a spectacular night of truly local music for a great local charity held in the very heart of the town and if that’s not enough to make you want to purchase your ticket we’ll also have a bar and some food.
