The New Foxtrot Serenaders and Simon Gledhill will be performing together on Sunday 8th March at 3-00pm in the Broadway Theatre Catford.
This is the first concert for the Compton since its restoration by Peter Hammond and we hope that it will be the first of many for them at the theatre.
The concert will be compered by Peter Hammond and Simon and the band will combine in some specially arranged numbers to re-create the 'Organ the dance band and me' theme of the 1930s.
More information about the concert is available on their website
HURRY, HURRY, HURRY !!
