Band concert helps festival
BARKING Ted, a Tenterden based band, are hosting a 70s night called Abbasolutely in aid of this year’s Tentertainment festival. It will be held this Saturday at The Tenterden Club and will feature a full set from the band, followed by a 70s disco highlighting songs from ABBA. A previous event in December banked £2,000 for Tentertainment, which takes place this year over the weekend of July 2, 3 and 4 and which Barking Ted are headlining. Band member Nigel Loraine said: “We would love to raise a similar amount so we are looking forward to people dusting off their platforms, pulling on their flares and coming down to join the fun.” Tickets, priced £10, are available from Kensal and Gertel in Tenterden High Street.
