Clacton Concert Orchestra have devised the perfect antidote for the grey days following Christmas!  Come to our Viennese Café New Year Concert in its truly informal setting on Sunday 29th January in the Princes Theatre, Clacton on Sea at 3:00pm.  Coffee and tea  are being served with cakes on the tables, help yourselves, walk around, talk to your friends, dance when your feet lead you, most of all enjoy the music, old and new favourites from Vienna, and individual items that will entertain and amuse.  More about that in our New Year update!  Proceeds from the concert will go to the Support Group of  St Helena Hospice Tendring Day Care Centre.  Last year we raised £500 for this very worthy cause and with your help we hope to donate at least that amount this coming year at the Viennese Café concert.

Tickets are available, priced £8.00, which includes refreshments, from the Theatre Box Office tel: 01255 686633  Family tickets are available priced £15.00.  Last year’s concert was sold out at an early stage, we suggest advanced booking is advisable.
