Burnham-On-Sea's Princess Hall group receives £1,000 funding boost

Burnham's Princess HallThe group running Burnham-On-Sea's Princess Hall has this week been handed a £1,000 cash boost from town councillors.

The 'Friends Of The Princess' had requested financial help from the Town Council to promote the hall's events over the coming months - and on Monday night (June 1st), councillors gave a green light to the application.

Cllr Neville Jones backed a proposal by Cllr Chris Williams to award the funding to the group, and said: "The 'Friends' group is trying hard to make a go of the Princess and deserves help and support."

Internationally-acclaimed musician and song writer Chris Jagger will be performing at the Princess this coming Saturday, June 6th, for the first of a series of concerts over the summer.

It comes after the completion of work to upgrade the theatre's stage electronic system, which caused the cancellation of a scheduled concert at the venue earlier last month.

Tickets for this Saturday's concert are priced £5 in advance or £8 on the door and will be available from this Thursday (May 28th) at GC Music and The Old Pier Tavern or by calling 01278 783161.

Doors will open at 7pm and the show is scheduled to start at 8.15pm. It will feature the multi-talented Chris Jagger and his band (pictured), supported by Dorset comedy band 'Who’s Afeard', who are also due to perform at this year's Glastonbury Festival, and 'Steve, One Bloke, One Mandolin'.
