Ready to Rock School’s Summer event in aid of Open Sight

The young, teenage and adult rockers, from the Portsmouth, Petersfield, Havant and Waterlooville rock schools, will be playing rock songs from across the decades, at Eastoke Corner seafront, in aid of Open Sight
Ready To Rock School’s Mark Thompson-Smith’s said “The past three summer charity gigs have been amazing musically and, weather wise our first two years on the seafront, were brilliant…absolutely scorching. I’ve put in my request to the Hayling weather gods, for more of the same.

We bring over nearly 200 people to the island which is fantastic. Add in the Islanders and other visitors and you can see that we pull in a pretty big crowd, with most of them spending the whole day at the Plaza being entertained throughout the afternoon by our students. It’s really incredibly flattering and such a buzz for all of our young, teenage and adult rockers!

The music kicks off at 12.30pm at Eastoke Corner on Sunday July the 17th and is open to the public. 

The event is again part of the

Havant Borough Council backed 

Playing On The Plaza season.
