I hope this mail finds you keeping well. It’s been a while since I emailed you, mainly because I was on sabbatical for three months from July to September and I had some amazing experiences in the Philippines, Leeds Festival and walking the Camino Way – amongst others.

HOUSE GIG: KEITH JAMES I have a couple of spaces available for this, due to a few ‘drop outs’ on Saturday 2 November if you are interested. Unfortunately, those on the reserve list are no longer able to make it. Keith is a really is a class act and is a legend too! More details here

AN EVENING WITH GRAHAM KENDRICK Unfortunately this event at Emmanuel on Sunday 8 December has been SOLD OUT for a few weeks now.
HOUSE GIG: WITH TYZACK AND TORTORA What better way to chase away the blues on the official ‘most miserable’ weekend of the year than to have musicians from two of the UK’s favourite blues bands play Billericay Rectory on Saturday 15 January 2020? This will be my first gig of 2020 and more details can be found here

THANK YOU For helping to keep music (and theatre) live in Billericay. Being an independent promoter isn’t easy nowadays, with more and more venues closing down, I, along the artists who have appeared, really appreciate your continued support.
Do keep your eyes on my website revpacman.wordpress.com for other upcoming events alongside some interesting (honestly) articles to read!
We have lots of events taking place at Emmanuel during the next few weeks, you can read a bit more about those here Do be sure to keep an look out for Christmas events – I’ll send you a reminder nearer the time.
Don’t forget I’m always happy to catch up for a coffee/beer/curry!
