The nation’s best Rock ’n’ Roll variety show has raised over £10,300 for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.
This was 'That'll Be The Day's' 16th year at Folly Farm and its 35th appearance at The Follies Theatre. The much loved show, with two nights of high-quality entertainment, was seen by over a thousand people.
Over those 16 years, the event has raised the staggering sum of just over £153,000 for various charities, including: Wales Air Ambulance, the Rotary Clubs of Milford Haven and Narberth & Whitland, the RNLI and the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home, which has been the chosen charity for the last few years. Event organiser Phil Thompson MBE commented:
“It was great to have That’ll Be The Day returning to Folly Farm for two wonderful nights of entertainment, especially in front of two sell out audiences, and yes they will be back on 25th & 26th October 2024. Tickets will go on sale early next year.
“It was lovely to see so many members of clubs and organisations: Narberth & Whitland Rotary, Haverfordwest Rotary, Pembrokeshire Classic Car Club, Lamphey WI, Pembroke Bridge Club and Marion Bulley’s Parties from local Care Homes.” Folly Farm again very kindly supplied the venue.
Chris Ebsworth, Director of Folly Farm, said:
"Folly Farm was once again proud to support Phil Thompson and the That’ll Be The Day team. A cascade of praise followed the performances, such as: ‘The best show ever - not just TBTD shows but the best show I've ever seen’ and ‘tremendous night. First time I've seen the show but going to bring others next time because I've enjoyed it so much!‘
“We look forward to seeing That'll Be The Day back here next year."
These comments were summed up by the quote from another audience member: “That'll Be The Day - BUT OH WHAT A NIGHT!” A HUGE thank you must go to Folly Farm and That'll Be The Day. Also, thanks to sponsors Milford Haven Port Authority (Community Sponsor) Mojo Marketing and Pure West Radio (Marketing and Media sponsors) and the Paul Sartori Team: Nicky, Nia, Mand, Corinda, Val, Gill, Mair, Janet, Angela, Paul and Pat.
