“Have you heard the news? There’s good rocking tonight!”
Since the old Eel Pie Hotel in Twickenham and its famous jazz and blues club burnt down in 1971 things have been pretty quiet on Eel Pie Island. Water gently laps, birds sweetly coo and boats bob soothingly on their moorings. All is peace and calm. Well, at least until now!
On Saturday 25th April, drape suited, crepe booted rock ‘n’ roll returns to Eel Pie Island with an Easter Bunny Hop at Richmond Yacht Club. As well as gen-u-ine 50’s and 60’s rock and pop music from everyone’s local favourites ‘Nark Drool and the Shudders’ there will be a licensed bar, hot food and a free dance lesson! Jumping Jivers, Batman!
If your creepers need dusting this is your chance to give them a work-out - and enjoy some of that authentic Eel Pie Island atmosphere at the same time. The Bunny Hop starts at 7.30 sharp and tickets are just £10 each. Please note that because of restricted numbers admission is by ticket only. Tickets can be booked now by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information please contact Billy Sincere on 020 8892 5211.
