Sheyla Bonnick and the Sounds of Boney M

Archant

Sheyla Bonnick and the Sounds of Boney M are coming to Exmouth Pavilion in November. And we ve got a pair of tickets to give away to this great show!

To send a link to this page you must be logged in. Sheyla was a member of an early line-up of Euro-pop group Boney M and helped to promote the group s first single, Baby Do You Wanna Bump.

Her powerful voice still sounds just like the day German singer-songwriter Frank Farian first formed the iconic group, back in 1975. During the last 40 years, Sheyla and the Sounds of Boney M have enjoyed many successful tours around the world.

The show brings back the sounds of Boney M, its visual feel and musical history. With songs like Rasputin, Daddy Cool, Ma Baker, Brown Girl in the Ring, Rivers of Babylon and Holiday, it is easy to imagine yourself back in the days of those Frank Farian tunes and international stories which made the original concept so huge worldwide. For those who missed the 1970s, it s an unforgettable evening of nostalgia with the breath-taking pop and disco hits of Boney M and special guest band Gimme Gimme Gimme! The ABBA Tribute.

Sheyla Bonnick and the Sounds of Boney M appear at the Exmouth Pavilion at 8pm on Friday, November 20. Tickets are 20.50 (raised) and 18.50 (standard), available from the box office on 01395 222477 or online at: www.ledleisure.co.uk/exmouth-pavilion

Website aims to put Leiston on tourist trail and boost visitors

11:33 23 October 2015

A resident passionate about his town and its potential has launched a website to promote it and attract more visitors.

Leiston Film Theatre manager Wayne Burns took on the venture because he believes Leiston and its surrounding IP16 district deserves to be a destination for visitors and sees a dedicated tourism website as one of the major factors for the town s future prosperity. The website Visit-Leiston.co.uk has been created by Leiston-based web design company Melbek and personally funded by Mr Burns, with contributions from Leiston Business Association, EDF Energy and Suffolk Coastal District Council, to assist in the future development and marketing of the site. Mr Burns said: Sandwiched between the market town of Saxmundham and the coastal resort of Aldeburgh, there is no reason why Leiston shouldn t form part of the Heritage Coast tourist route.

Leiston is a town with character, proud of its working class routes, unique coastline and industrial heritage, which already benefits from the many thousands of people who visit the town each year for the shopping and various attractions, but I believe that there is still so much more potential.

The website features details of accommodation, plus food and drink and leisure categories, complimented by a local shopping guide, gallery and community section, which lists local information and numerous service providers that visitors and residents may find useful. As the site evolves it will also include a comprehensive events guide. Mr Burns said: Leiston and the surrounding area can boast many assets to its tourism portfolio including a High Street full of useful shops, a leisure centre with swimming pool, an award winning museum, attractive open spaces including the unique stretch of coastline at Sizewell, brilliant camping sites and the oldest purpose-built cinema in the county, all of which contribute substantial additional funds into the local economy.

A Facebook and Twitter presence has been established to support the new website and will feature regular postings of local information, event listings and images.

The website was launched at a presentation at Leiston Community Centre, King George s Avenue, with guests including representatives of businesses and organisations.
