Radio DJ and TV presenter Mike Read has been added to the line-up for a nostalgic night of music raising funds for our Ashdown Centre for children and young adults with learning disabilities.

‘Worthing Goes Back to the 60’s’, which is taking place on Saturday 7th March at the Charmandean Centre, will transport its audience back to the golden age of pop. Mike is joining an already bulging line-up of musicians, including The Fenmen and Sweeney Todd.

Mike said: “I’m thrilled be taking part. Not only will the evening itself be fantastic, but the fact we will be raising money for such a deserving cause makes it so much more special.”

All funds raised will be put towards our Ashdown Centre. The centre runs a range of services that provide respite from caring for families with a child or young adult who has a learning disability or other complex needs.

Nick Pearson, vocalist of Sweeney Todd, said: “Come for a good night and a good cause. Enjoy yourself and have a dance. It’s all for charity. Enjoy being back in the sixties!”

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and the show will run until 11.45pm. Tickets are £15. For more information, please visit:
