Forget the credit cards, the Christmas ones too, and that ‘always forgotten gift’ – and come and join us at SANDS BY THE SEA for an extra special Christmas party! Expect a buffet, courtesy of Sands cuisine to rival the richest Christmas feast! And musically it’ll be anything but a ‘Silent Night’ as myself , our ‘Rat Pack Rhythm Section’ (Tim Huskisson, Roger Curphey and Alan Clarke) will be joined by star guest DOMINIC ASHWORTH (guitar) our favourite singer CAROL BRAITHWAITE and (a late addition to our all-star bill!) tenor saxophonist ROBERT FOWLER to bring you seasonal swing – and a chance to dance between our Restaurant tables too (if you’ve still got the energy after the buffet!!). Remember that Christmas is a time ‘when no-one watches their wallet or their waist'(!) so do book early to join the fun! Just to let you know: our buffet is served at 7.30 before the music starts at 8.30 – and don’t forget to pre-book (£25.00 per person) to join the biggest Christmas party for miles around. Here’s the number: (01702 443400); there’s plenty of free parking on the seafront from 6pm and the address is: Icon Building, Adventure Island, Western Esplanade, Southend SS1 1EE. A Cool Yule to us all!
