No Main Event This Year

Malborough Music Monster Mash

The annual event hosted by friends of Dave Sharp, who sadly lost his life with a battle against cancer.

Before he died he expressed his wishes for us to continue the Monster Mash and to put the money back into the community to help children develop their musical talent.

Due to varying circumstances we have decided to take a break in 2017 from the Mash. We aim to bring it back next year with a line up of Titans.

In the mean time we will have some gigs coming up for our young musicians, The Mill Club Sat 8th July (will be billed as a mini mash and donations made to our nominated charities) and Kingsbridge Band Stand Fri 21st July (as part of fair week).

This year’s KINGSBRIDGE BOAT SHOW promises to be the best ever and features some new and exciting Boat/Engine packages from GRAND & Nordkapp powered by the latest in outboard technology from EVINRUDE. There will also be a selection of excellent value boats from our second hand and brokerage range.
