The Splash FM open air concert in the town’s Steyne Gardens attracted an audience of 5,000 over the weekend.
During the event a collection was held for Guild Care, Splash FM’s Charity of the Year, raising nearly £1,000. The money will assist the charity in the work they do supporting those suffering from dementia in the local community.
Also on the stage was the cheque presentation to a Splash FM listener who recently won £5,260 in the “What’s the Word’ competition; which had been running for 11 and a half months, before Miranda Brookman from Worthing correctly guessed the missing word (photo below).
Splash FM’s Operations Director, David Cunningham, who leads the planning for the Garden Party told RadioToday: “This event continues to grow and it is a pleasure for Splash FM to bring so much positive energy together in the town’. He added ‘it wouldn’t be possible without the huge support Splash FM receives from the many local companies who support the event and the local suppliers who provide the sound, light, video, plant, photography and catering. Thanks also to Adur and Worthing Council, Worthing NSL, St John Ambulance, the emergency services and most of all the amazing people of Worthing who turned out in such force once again”.
Headlining the show were East Grinstead based Chic Le Freak, a six piece band paying tribute to the music of Nile Rodgers. The band also featured celebrity guest drummer, Mel Gaynor of Simple Minds.
Also performing were Rule the World, a Take That tribute supported by their four piece band The 11th Hour.
