One of the main fund-raising events of a Mayor’s year is the Christmas show, and this year is no different.

Councillor Ian Selby, the current Mayor of Grantham, has a special line-up of entertainers and hopes his choice will make the event on Thursday, December 4 a sell-out success.

Here is the line-up:

l Jayne Darling and the Ricky Hunter Big Band. Jayne sings 1940s music and with Ricky’s Big Band sound it will be a special start to the concert.

l Walton Girls’ High School will entertain with both song and dance. Coun Selby said: “The staff and pupils are a credit to the town and they will be a wonderful addition to the show.”

l Dennis Hannant MBE will be singing to HRH the Princess Royal on the afternoon of the show. Coun Selby said: “Dennis is a true gentleman who is establishing himself in the entertainment world as a crooner who is bold and takes on the difficult songs very well indeed.”

l Eleni Skarpari, Echo Wants Her Voice Back. A talented singer/songwriter from Cyprus, and a past finalist Cypriot entry in the Eurovison song contest.

l March to the Grave has been performing for over 30 years. Coun Selby said: “They are a class act and offer something different with their brilliant punk rock style of entertainment for all age groups.”

The show is on at the Guildhall Arts Centre and starts at 7.30pm. Proceeds will go to the mayor’s chosen charities, which are the Grantham Journal Children’s Fund, Kesteven Rideability and Gravity FM.

Tickets are £12, available from the box office on 01476 406158 or
