THE Christ­mas Party event at Canol­fan Beaumaris is des­tined to get ev­ery­one in the Fes­tive Swing yet again this year.

This an­nual event to raise funds for the town’s Sports and Leisure Cen­tre, – a Not for Profit So­cial En­ter­prise – is or­gan­ised by Dr Steve MacVicar and his wife Shan. Yes, the very same Dr Steve MacVicar who ear­lier this year cy­cled from Is­tan­bul to An­gle­sey to raise funds for St David’s Hospice and the Mo­tor Neu­rone Disease As­so­ci­a­tion, he’s a busy man.

Trans­ferred to the town from the lo­cal coun­cil five years ago, Canol­fan Beaumaris is man­aged by a board of vol­un­teer direc­tors and op­er­ated by a small com­mit­ted staff with the as­sis­tance of lo­cal vol­un­teers. Rais­ing funds is an on­go­ing chal­lenge for the cen­tre as it strives to con­tinue to pro­vide much-needed recre­ational and so­cial fa­cil­i­ties for Beaumaris and An­gle­sey. The venue boasts a tiered seat­ing staged theatre, full-sized sports hall, gym, gallery and ex­ten­sive pro­gramme of fit­ness classes and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

Live mu­sic is by Dr Jazz, the well-es­tab­lished splin­ter group from the in­ter­na­tional award-win­ning Beaumaris Brass Band, who cer­tainly know how to get the party go­ing with a swing. Their vast reper­toire ap­peals to all tastes and never fails to get feet tap­ping and peo­ple danc­ing.

This pop­u­lar event is once again be­ing catered by The Bish­ops­gate Ho­tel, Beaumaris. Good food, great mu­sic, a fan­tas­tic venue and a wor­thy cause, sounds like an event too good to miss. Fri­day, Novem­ber, 29. Tick­ets £32 each with ta­bles seat­ing 10 if you wish to book for a group party. Tick­ets are now lim­ited, but for in­for­ma­tion or to book call 01248 811200 or email en­[email protected]­fan­beau­ uk.
