New Year's Eve Revels

BUSCA is going mad this New Year's Eve. We are running not one major event but two, side by side at the Community Centre at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre.

In the main Hall, we will have the Party, hosted by Nigel Revill. In the Dining Hall it's the Ball with DJ Colin of C&J Sound. Both events will start at 8.00, share the bar, enjoy a buffet meal, merge at midnight for the usual celebrations and finish at 1.00am. Tickets for both cost £19 and can be obtained from the Paper Shop or by phoning 07718 153117 or 413649.

The Party will follow in the tradition established so very successfully last year by Ben and his Big Taste Disco. Nigel is a singer and song writer who will host a DISCO WITH A DIFFERENCE! In addition to DJ'ing the disco, he will also perform totally live without any backing tracks. He has a huge range of songs from the last five decades and will be happy to be guided by your requests. He has a wealth of experience as a solo guitarist and singer and has performed at venues all over the country both as a soloist and as the host of parties big and small. Expect wonderful music, competitions, spot prizes and all the usual party dances from conga to YMCA and the handbag dance. And above all, a party atmosphere and LOTS of FUN!

The Ball is a seasonal celebration for serious dancers. Colin is an extremely experienced and popular DJ who specialises in all forms of ballroom and sequence dancing. He will make sure that there is something for everyone including all the usual favourites plus line dances, rock n roll, latin and, of course, your requests. And he'll make sure there is all the excitement and atmosphere that goes with New Year's Eve.

Profits from the party will go to BUSCA from which we hope to make a generous donation to the Church extension project. All the profits from the Ball will go towards to Village Hall project.

If you haven't bought your tickets yet, hurry now. It was a sell out last year and we expect the same again.
