It’s Christmaaaas!

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Slade’s classic party hit, so we are thrilled to announce that Village People have 4 pairs of tickets to give away to see this iconic band when they play at the Waterfront in Norwich on Saturday 11 December.

Slade are, without doubt, one of the most exciting British bands of the past 50 years. With their unique blend of perfect pop rock ’n’ roll, outrageous flamboyance  and pure fun, and no less than 23 Top-20 singles – of which six were No.1 smash hits – plus six smash albums, Slade have become a firm favourite in the hearts of pop fans all over the world.

The band is now led by founder member Dave Hill on Lead Guitar, with John Berry who joined in 2003 on Lead Vocals, Bass, Acoustic Guitar and Violin. John has also played Bass with Mud, The Sweet, Screaming Lord Sutch, The Tremeloes, Bay City Rollers and The Rubettes.

Joining John on Lead Vocals and Keys is Russell Keefe. Having played in many original bands in his early years, he has also recorded albums for Polygram and United Artists and toured with The Pretty Things and Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers. Alex Bines now joins on Drums; he has toured with Wilko Johnson, The Rubettes and is also a drum teacher.

Slade today is still one of the most exciting bands on the road, and their stage performance is a dynamic, powerful and exhilarating roller-coaster ride of pure unadulterated rock ’n’ roll.

If you’re looking for a fantastic present for a friend or loved one this Christmas, enter our competition to win this superb hamper, which is packed with great ingredients and helpful kitchen utensils – plus the Cooking for One book.

Cooking for One is a new book that has been launched to provide valuable support for those who have lost a loved one, along with practical advice on how to navigate one of the most difficult times of the day – mealtimes. The book features a host of recipes and stories supplied by those starting a new chapter in their life, telling the story of their loved one and choosing a recipe that’s important to them.

The book is the idea of Simon Beckett-Allen, co-owner of Rosedale Funeral Home which has bases in Norfolk and Suffolk. He was inspired to create it in memory of his late sister, who was a chef.
