Bexhill Roaring 20s event set to take off next week

Bexhill has another new free event on its social calendar next weekend with a day-long Roaring 20s extravaganza.

Bexhill Roaring 20s, part of Bexhill Carnival Week, will be held along the seafront on Saturday July 19. Organiser Roger Crouch said it promises to be a fun day out for all the family. “Wonderful vintage and classic cars are heading to Bexhill. Steam cars from the early 1900s will also be parading along the sea front and around town.

“While viewing the marvellous cars there will be jazz bands to add to the atmosphere on East Parade. On the lawns the fun starts at 10am with a childrens vintage fun fair, donkey rides (small charge) and a themed 20s market and BBQ. From 11.30am there will be performances on and off the stage on the lawns.”

With entertainment from the likes of East Sussex School of Performing Arts and Gecko Dance Company from Helenswood Academy, Roger said he’s very proud that so many young people are looking forward to taking part, adding: “The day is about enjoying an atmosphere of a bygone age, seeing the cars, aircraft, hearing music, watching and joining in the dances of the time but above all a great fun day for the family.”

Other entertainment includes Charleston dancers who will perform and then teach ‘The Charleston’ to anyone who would like to have a go. The Royal Navy Marching Band from HMS Nelson will play during the afternoon and an 18 piece Swingshift big band will blast out the tunes on the De La Warr Terrace. The finale will be dazzling air displays starting at 2.30pm with the Breitling Wing Walkers at 4.30pm. Further information at:
