Twist and shake for the “Mem”


A ’60s party will be held at the Milligan Theatre, Rye College, on Saturday February 13 in aid of the Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital.

The organisers acknowledge sponsorship by the Rye Academy Trust.

Party-goers are being encouraged to make up tables of eight and doors open at 7pm. Tickets from or phone 01797 223810
