Air show music event boosts Clacton's Christmas lights bid
6:00pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
CLACTON traders kept crowds of onlookers entertained after the air show with a musical event to boost funds for the town’s Christmas lights.
The Clacton Town Partnership, made up of traders in the town, stepped in at the last minute to help provide the money for a festive display last year.
And they have already started raising cash for Christmas lights this year, with their latest event cashing in on the air show crowds.
They organised a spectacular show of musical tribute acts in Clacton’s town square on Friday evening.
Partnership chairman Mandy Rosier said: “There was a wonderful atmosphere around the town throughout the air show and it was great to be able to extend that into the evening and raise some money to help our town.
“This is exactly the sort of thing we want to put on to boost our town, and I’d like to thank GCS Alarms, Magic City and the Pavilion, MLR and Krazy Al who sponsored the event and made it possible.”
