We’re starting to put together what I think is going to be a fabulous Southend Weekend.
This is what Otway says he has planned so far:
I will be launching the 2015 Campaign and we have Sur Les Docks - the Dunkerque band who are well loved by the veterans of those 15 trips across the chanel.
The main concern we had last year was the availability of bar staff and beer. This was basically because the Hotel did not know what to expect - Well they do now and have agreed ten barrels of Real Ale at a good price and are more than happy to make sure the bar is well staffed throughout the weekend.
Last Year we filmed the video for the Christmas Single - And, excitement was high after we achieved over 100,000 video views and the bookmaker’s Coral’s and Ladbrooks had us as the 6th favourite for Christmas Number One.
But in the end It was a bit like this year's general election - During the week of the chart I managed to get the exit poll from the Chart Company and by mid week I had crossed out the words “Save For Top Of The Pops” in my diary for Christmas Day.
However, Loads of people, including myself, loved the video and it’s still getting lots of views. So I wanted to do something similar this year that was guaranteed to be a bit more of a success.
