The popular six-piece band The King Size Papas will take centre stage at Sedgeford Village Hall next Friday, December 9, at a 1940s Christmas Party. The band play an infectious blend of good-time jazz and jump blues – and are regular performers at Sheringham’s 1940s weekend. The choice of a 40s-style event follows the success of the previous1940s evening held earlier in the year and organisers are looking to make Sedgeford a regular 40s venue. 1940s dress is optional but many people do get into the spirit of the age. The party begins at 7.30pm, Christmas food will be served and tickets at £15 can be reserved by calling 01485 570097 or 07968 596949.

Why not swing along to Downham Methodist Church tomorrow for a charity Christmas Concert presented by the Downham Market Swing Orchestra, under the musical direction of Cy Payne. Tickets are £5 available on the door or from Lewks in Wales Court. During the concert the orchestra will present a cheque of £500 to Norfolk Hospice Tapping House – money raised during the year. For further details call on 01366 388839.

James Veck Gilodi of Deaf Havana fame is playing a charity gig for West Norfolk Mind at the Rathskeller in Lynn on Tuesday from 7pm; we understand he is returning there on Wednesday evening as well.
