The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is a special event, as the Club features its all-star house band THE CHAIN GANG performing in aid of the Mayor of Spelthorne’s Charities.

It’s become something of a tradition that the Club devotes one of its Music Nights to such an event every year, and they have proved extremely successful evenings, so they are delighted to be able to repeat the exercise this year. This year’s Mayor of Spelthorne is Cllr. Mary Madams, a Laleham & Shepperton Green councillor, who visited the Club for this year’s MCC lunch in Cricket Week. Once again the Club has assembled the usual suspects from the great and good of the local music fraternity who are regulars at the Club in a dozen-strong band to play under the name of The Chain Gang in honour of the Mayor’s chain of office.

The Mayor’s charities are Midas Plus, a local registered charity based in Staines-upon-Thames, run to help local people in need, raising and distributing funds for community groups and individuals (mainly in Spelthorne) who have nowhere else to turn, and Eikon: an award-winning charity which provides long-term support to some of the county's most vulnerable young people, with a vision is to develop happy, thriving and resilient young adults who make a positive contribution to society.

The musicians will be giving their services free, so all the door money will go to the charities, and there will also be a raffle. It will be a great night of top-class rock ‘n’ roll, blues, ‘60s R&B, rock and country. It’s all for a great cause and will be a fun community night, so it's hoped to see you there.

Please note that as guests of the Mayor will be coming from different parts of Surrey, the start of this show will be a bit earlier than usual, and the band will be on stage at 8.30pm. Food will be available as usual. It’s £10.00 on the door and doors open at 7pm.

Please also note that because repair work is being done to the area of car park adjoining the Clubhouse on the following day, Sat. 14th, that strip will be coned off to ensure it can be kept clear for the morning. It will be used during the evening for staff, the Mayor and her guests, and band members.
