Community concert to rock St Francis

2015-12-10 06:00

THE annual St Francis Rocks, a free community concert in the park - will kick off the holiday season in St Francis Bay on December 11.

The event is proudly presented by Village Square SuperSpar and Tops.

The event is the brainchild of John Hammond, head of the Business Chamber and owner of Legends,. Hammond says: “This is the third year we are organising the concert and each year we grow bigger and better as we build on previous successes and increased local support.”

Richard Moolman owner of Village Square SuperSpar and Tops adds: “The holiday season is important to all businesses in St Francis, but for the other 48 weeks of the year we support and rely not only on each other, but each other’s businesses. Presen-ting St Francis Rocks is one of the many ways in which we, the business owners, like to give back to the community that is so important to us.”

Due to popular demand the concert sees the return of local bands including Johnny Soxx and Jack Rabbit Slims, Well Done Son, Toby and Norman and Absent Irish.

New names to the line-up this year are Assanda, Francois Hugo and Rob Thompson plus the world acclaimed guitarist and local resident Marc Maingard and his Marc Maingard Band.

No tickets are required, although a limited number of tables are available for pre-booking with funds paid for those going to St Francis Bay Home Care.

Simply pack your picnic, blanket and chairs, head down to the Village Green from 12:00 on Saturday, December 12 and enjoy a festive feast of family entertainment.

  • The event is supported by local businesses the Village Square Super Spar and Tops, Legends, The Ratepayers Association, Harcourts, St Francis Links, Brooklands Hardware and St Francis Brewery.
