The Norah Sande Award Artistic Director and Founder Trustee, Spencer Freeman MBE, who has been the inspiration for the Awards from the start more than 17 years ago, passed away this month. This has come as a great shock to us all and out thoughts are very much with his wife Pam at this time. However, we feel that it is right that we continue with this year's event and that this is what Spencer would have wanted.
Tickets will be available from the Festival Office, 70 Kings Avenue, Eastbourne BN21 2PD or call 01323 729013.
Cheques should be made payable to "Sande Award". Please note tickets will be sent out nearer the date.
