ST FRANCIS ROCKS 2015 annual Community Concert in the Park – proudly presented by Village Square Super Spar & Tops has been confirmed for Saturday 12th December on the Village Green.
This popular free community event has established itself over recent years as the official kick off to the holiday season in St Francis Bay and is supported by local businesses including the Village Square Super Spar & Tops, Legends, The Ratepayers Association, Harcourts, St Francis Links, Brooklands Hardware and St Francis Brewery.
The event is the brainchild of John Hammond, head of the Business Chamber and owner of Legends, who is delighted with the public response, saying “ This is the 3rd year we are organising the concert and each year we grow bigger and better as we build on previous successes and increased local support.” Richard Moolman owner of Village Square SuperSpar & Tops adds “The holiday season is important to all businesses in St Francis, but for the other 48 weeks of the year we support and rely not only each other, but each other’s businesses. Presenting St Francis Rocks is one of the many ways in which we, the business owners, like to give back to the community that is so important to us.”
Due to popular demand the concert sees the return of local bands including Johnny Soxx & Jack Rabbit Slims, Well Done Son, Toby & Norman and Absent Irish. New names to the line up this year are Assanda, Francois Hugo & Rob Thompson plus the world acclaimed guitarist and local resident Marc Maingard and his Marc Maingard Band.
No tickets are required, although a limited number of tables are available for pre-booking with funds paid for those going to St Francis Bay Home Care. Simply pack your picnic, blanket and chairs, head down to the Village Green from 12pm on Saturday 12th December and enjoy a festive feast of family entertainment.
