VISITORS to one of Suffolk’s most prestigious coastal towns are invited to take a step back in time to the swinging 60s.

A summer concert is being held on Aldeburgh beach on July 6. The 60s by the Sea event, which is in aid of three good causes, will feature live music acts and entertainment, while food and drinks will be available all evening on the seafront.

The event, organised by the White Lion Hotel general manger Peter Osborne, follows the success of last years’ Proms by the Sea, which raised more than £5,000 for local charities.

Mr Osborne said: “I’m thrilled to be given the opportunity once again to put on an event for the town and am so thankful for the support from not only our sponsors for their financial help, but the community of Aldeburgh for getting behind the concert.”

Last years’ Proms by the Sea celebrated The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and saw a brilliant turn out, despite the weather. Local residents and businesses came together to support the event and even donated funds to make a flypast by the Grace Spitfire possible.

Mr Osborne said he would like to thank Barry Dye Events for helping to organise the event, which starts at 5pm. “The line-up will be publicised shortly and it promises to be a night to remember,” he continued.

“But it is not only about swinging to the sounds of the 60s. We will also be raising money for some fantastic causes: The Suffolk Foundation, the RNLI and Aldeburgh United Charities. Proms by the Sea helped to raise more than £5,000 for local charities and we aim to beat that this year.”

The concert is being sponsored by TA Hotel Collection, Best of Suffolk, Fuller Davies, Direct Seafoods, Norfolk Cordial and the East of England Co-Op and supported by Aldeburgh Town Council and members of the Aldeburgh Business Association.

It is also backed by Archant publications the East Anglian Daily Times and Suffolk magazine, together with BBC Radio Suffolk.
