Brilliant news this morning for The Hub, Marine Theatre and Town Mill. We have all received funding for our buildings, to make them a better space for our community and visitors. The Coastal Community Team have been outstanding supporting us all for this important bid!
Over 100 adults and young people came to The Hub on Friday 20th November to hear two great bands perform for a fundraising event to raise money for The Hubs’ continued renovation and Red Arrows 2016.
New up and coming band Slinky Machine opened the proceedings for the evening, performing their edgy, cool groove style of funk and fusion music. John Robertson, the guitarist from Slinky Machine, said “It’s a great venue and we really enjoyed performing at The Hub, would love to be asked back again sometime….”
Mr Jean played two brilliant sets of those favorite dance floor fillers which kept the young and ‘older’ generation dancing until the music stopped at 11.30pm.
Dottie Kitchen made delicious food all evening! A big thank you to Alethea McLoughlin for donating her time, ideas and wonderful ingredients and thanks to all The Hub volunteers that manned the bar and helped with decorations and ticket sales.
“It was great to see so many new faces of mixed generations at The Hub all dancing and enjoying professionally played music”, said Diane Earle “we’ve raised over £1000, I have some expenses to pay before the final count will be known”.
Using The Hub as a venue for bands to showcase is something that will continue. Get in touch if you want to get on the stage!
As part of Concerts in the West programme come along to The Hub to hear beautiful classical music performed by Consone Quartet. The group are Violin, Viola and Cello and are all prize winning musicians from the Royal College of Music who have formed this exciting new quartet. Tickets can be purchased at Serendip in Lyme Regis and also on the door.
The youth club sessions at The Hub on Monday and Wednesday and Friday are really important to young people as they are managed and staffed by trained youth workers who are employed by DCC. Not every child wants to go to an organised after school activity and youth club gives them a place to drop in to, relax and make friends, if they don;t have youth club they have no place to socialise or the chance to have fun and grow in self esteem and confidence. Please have your say and fill in the on-line questionnaire before December 16th. If you don’t have access to a computer please use the ones available at LymeNet, St Michaels Business Centre, Church Street, Lyme Regis.
What a great night this will be! Mr Jean are the funkiest band in town who play those old favourite dance floor fillers so that time has arrived again! “What time?!” you ask…Mr Jèan time! Bringing their inimitable sound to The Hub can only mean dancing, prancing, thinking, mingling, singing, shin-digging and hip wriggling, but not in that order.
Slinky Machine are using this event as their debut as a band! Cool jazz funk sounds.
A licensed bar and food by “Dottie Kitchen” will top of the evening brilliantly.
Please come and support The Hub and Red Arrows 2016! This a joint fundraiser for our ongoing renovation work and of course, summer isn’t summer in Lyme Regis without the Red Arrows!
