"As a one man band this is the greatest event ever bringing some of my favourite performers from across the country to our beautiful seaside resort. This year we are particularly honoured to have Marco di Giuseppe coming all the way from Rome to share his songs and performance. This is the one day of the year you cannot miss… come with your family down to the prom for a great day of entertainment" - Pete Moser, the Fastest One Man Band in the World and Artistic Director of More Music.
