      EVENT DETAILS
      Cheltenham Connections Daytime Concerts Continue October 26

      Cheltenham Connections Daytime Concerts have been held at the Cheltenham Town Hall Pillar Room and are aimed at presenting good quality musical entertainment for those who may have difficulty attending evening events. Access equals inclusion so these concerts are open to disabled and non-disabled participants. Disabled and older people are particularly welcome and it may be possible to arrange transport for wheelchair users within the Cheltenham area.

      These concerts have been, until recently, booked to capacity every time by local day centres in the county and their service users and this has made the concerts self sustaining. They are supported by Art Shape and while they have been popular over the last 20 years they never existed to make a profit.

      With the closure of many Day Centres the number of people attending the concerts was reduced considerably.
      Following the response to the last press release from Art Shape and an interview with David Smith on BBC Radio Gloucestershire lamenting the possible demise of the concerts due to poor attendance, the concert in June saw attendance figures swell to near capacity once again.

      We are pleased to announce the continuation of this established, well loved and lively event with the next concert on Friday, October 26th 2012 at Cheltenham Town Hall Pillar Room from 11.15 am - 1 pm featuring ‘Itchy Feet’…

      Duo Dale & Tracy have been performing music together for the last 10 years travelling around the world performing at many prestigious events and parties

      In the UK they have performed for the BBC, RAF, Ocean Village, Hilton, Renaissance, Hotels and Butlins to name a few, they have also performed in Asia, UAE and Europe including Japan, south Korea and the UAE other highlights include a performance on TV in Vienna.

      Their repertoire includes Pop, Rock and Roll, Disco and lounge classics. Dale is known for his amazing skill on the guitar and Tracy for her gutsy soulful vocals. Together they perform music to a very high standard.

      The concerts are always lively events with some audience members bringing inflatable guitars and microphone s so they can ‘air guitar’ and sing along to the songs.

      Admission is only £6 and Carers are admitted FREE.

      Organiser Peter Stone is still requesting expressions of interest from a replacement to mentor so that he can retire and rightly so after 20 years of volunteering his time for such a worthy cause.

      To book your place call Cheltenham Town Hall Box Office : 08445762210 or for all other enquiries ring Peter Stone on 01242-573034, e-mail pstone@sky.com or visit the website at www.cheltconnections.co.uk
