Matthew Batham continued “We had a terrific programme of things going on over Easter, which marked the opening of our new facilities at The Lamp.”
On Friday evening, 22nd April, was the Charity Fundraiser, in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
A line up of great bands – Manitoba, Empty Can, Plymouth Superbird, Pincher/Pye and Lazy J – set the scene for the 11th memorial fundraiser for Chris Brahms, who died, aged 27. Matthew said “Every year this is a great fundraiser for the BHF, and an occasion Bathams is proud to be part of.”
Acoustic artists performed in the marquee, with the bands in the Function Room.
On Easter Sunday (24th April) the new Play Area opened at 12.00. By 1pm, a Bouncy Castle was in place and from 4pm until 6pm the Bucking Bronco was on the car park!! – a real test for adults and kids over 12, and a good laugh for the friends and relatives watching!
In the evening the bands commenced again, plus Route 66 joined the line up. There was a jam session for anyone who came along with their own instruments and the Comedy Club was in action in the marquee.
Tom Luckman, Landlord at The Lamp Tavern, said “The Easter weather was great and I’m thrilled we had so much to offer everyone. I’ve been here for nearly nine years now and this is certainly the best week we have ever had”
