ConChord Big Band touchdown at Clair Hall

PR2185/LJ/MF - 14/09/2018

A Charity Big Band concert will be taking place at Clair Hall, Haywards Heath on Sunday 14 October 2018 from 7.30pm, hosted by Councillor Bruce Forbes, Chairman of Mid Sussex District Council.

An evening with Glenn Miller and friends will feature all the popular Big Band tunes that inspired a generation and boosted morale during World War II. The 17 piece ConChord Big Band orchestra will stunningly recreate the sound of iconic 1940’s Swing orchestras like Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Jimmy Dorsey. Performing as the wartime US Army Air Force Band, ConChord will deliver music and songs from the Big Band Era to help get you ‘In The Mood’ for an unforgettable evening.

A raffle will be held during the intermission and prizes have been kindly donated by Waitrose Haywards Heath, Hall and Woodhouse, Marks and Spencer, The Entertainer, The Crown Turners Hill and The Orchards Shopping Centre. All funds raised on the night will go to Sullivan’s Heroes, a local charity based in Turners Hill that funds home adaptations for disabled children.

Councillor Bruce Forbes, Chairman of Mid Sussex District Council said:

“This promises to be a fantastic evening so please join us for a trip down memory lane with an uplifting visit to the age of Big Band and Swing music.

“Sullivan’s Heroes is a fantastic local charity and every ticket sold will help them to offer support and financial assistance to families with disabled children.”

Tickets are on sale now priced at £15 (£12 Concessions) and are available directly from the Clair Hall box office on 01444 455440 or online at
