Friday March 19-Sunday March 21 2010
Booking for Sunnyside 10, our annual weekend at the scene of Billy Fury's final public performance in Northampton, is now open.
The price of tickets is increased for the first time, to £12, which is fully refundable for cancellations made by January 30. As always, all profits will be donated to our official charity, the Heart Fund at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool.
The weekend will begin with the traditional informal show on the Friday night, which will again be held at the Innkeepers Lodge, Northampton East.
On the Saturday, the focus will be on the Sunnyside, Northampton, where we will be socialising in the afternoon and staging our main show from the early evening.
The headline band are Colin Paul and the Persuaders.
For the first time, we will have extra space at the Sunnyside, as the partition doors in the performance area will be opened, allowing us also to have exclusive use of a large area of the main bar. This will allow the fan clubs to have permanent sales tables, if they wish.
Admission this year will be by souvenir wristband, but as usual, everyone will also receive an event badge.
To book your place, please click the Sunnyside 10 link on the front page of http://www.billyfury.com to pay by credit/debit card, or send a cheque for £12 per place, plus £1.50 per order P&P (NOT per ticket) payable to Peaksoft, to Peaksoft, 5 The Wick, 37 Esplanade Gardens, Scarborough, YO11 2AW. Badges, etc, will be sent from December onwards. Telephone inquiries: 01723 375770. (Telephone payment cannot be taken.)
Our support performers are all volunteers.
Their only rewards are the offer of a complimentary ticket, a souvenir stage pass, and the pleasure of appearing in one of the music world's historic setting, in front of the friendliest bunch of people anyone is ever likely to meet.
Previous performers always receive an automatic invitation to return.
The current list of acceptances is below.
Any other volunteer performers are always welcome to put their names forward by emailing me at email@example.com.
