“We launch our new venue in style with the award-winning Frankie’s Guys as Frankie Valley and the Four Seasons, along with Tom-Tastic as Tom Jones in what will be an incredible night to remember,” said Michael.

“Supported by a live band and some surprises in store along the way, come and celebrate with us and dance the night away in our show-stopping opening night.

“This event will be a drive-in format with space to be able to sit outside your car (guidelines permitting).

“A large selection of food and drink is available to purchase on-site.

“Burgers, hot dogs, chicken wraps, loaded fries, pizza, popcorn, sweets, licensed bar, hot and cold drinks and more will all be on tap,” added Michael.

“The sound will be broadcast over PA and portable car speakers.

“We will be fully compliant with the latest Government restrictions on social distancing.

“In fact, there’s no need to get out of your car at all during the event if you don’t want to.

“We will have large walkways throughout the site.

“It really does promise to be a fantastic night out for people in Market Harborough and beyond,” said Michael.

“It’s the least we all deserve after all the Covid lockdowns we’ve had to deal with for the last year!”
