You are warmly invited to this event which we hope will be a relaxed evening of delicious food, wonderful music and good company. The Friends Life Sports and Social club lies at the foot of Box Hill, a delightful setting. It has a large hall for the musical part of the evening, a comfortable bar and terrace for the barbeque, a lovely garden and plenty of parking.

We have planned the evening to suit all ages so please bring the family. There is plenty of space, especially for the barbeque part of the evening.  We hope to be able to eat outdoors using the tables and chairs on the terrace and the picnic tables on the lawn area. You are welcome to bring your own picnic rugs if you prefer to sit on the ground. Food is included in the price of the ticket. Drinks are available from the bar at very reasonable prices. No “Bring Your Own”

The entertainment for the evening is a mouthwatering mixture of multi-talented musicians. We have members of the Gilfillen family who many of you have heard before. They studied at the Yehudi Menuhin school and will perform some beautiful classical pieces. We have a group of Harpists of all ages playing together which is a very exciting prospect and more of them later.
In the second half we have Ambrosedelany. Hannah Delany and Jamie Ambrose were introduced through their shared vocal coach. They hit it off immediately and have performed together since 2006.
Hannah took to the stage aged four. She has sung with many bands and duos since the age of fifteen and appears on radio both here and on the continent. Jamie began playing piano at the tender age of three. She played at many private shows in her native US before heading first to Germany then the UK. Jamie is a brilliant songwriter and has won many prizes.
Together they cover the whole range of musical genres from jazz classics, modern pop and accapella to their own material. We can promise you some great music.
Fortunately for us Pip Burley has agreed to entertain us as well. Pip has a wealth of experience in the media industry. He has been Executive Producer of The Darling Buds of May and Touch of Frost and others. He received an Ivor Novello award for the music for The Darling Buds of May. He will be singing and playing for us so what a feast to look forward to. I advise you to get your tickets soon as this is an exceptional line up of special talent in a delightful setting in the midst of our beautiful county of Surrey.

If you would like to come but have no transport, just let us know so that we can arrange it for you.

The venue is in Pixham Lane, just off the Denbies roundabout on the A24. The entrance is about 100m on the right and the club can be seen on your left as you drive through to the parking area.
