Westgate Pavilion Saved For The Nation

Hurrah! Regular ECR contributor Kevin Crace reports that the Ts have now been crossed and the Is dotted on his takeover of the Westgate Shed, er, Pavilion over on the north side.

Kevin, a Ramsgatonian and Thanetian Returnee whose background is in the upper echelons of the music industry, has big plans for the Pav, and wants to bring top London acts down to play at the venue, as well as continue its community role. He's also promised to, how shall I put it, tart the place up a bit. Not before time, methinks.

Our Kev clearly has the best of intentions for the venue, and I know him to be a man of considerable drive, integrity and ideas. Which he has amply demonstrated by offering me a free back stage pass, and a chance to stage 'An Evening With Eastcliff Richard' at the joint! Good on yer Kev!

Well done Kevin. I've had some business dealings with Kev for a few years up until just last year and he's as straight as a die. Even in times of difficult cashflow etc he was the one person you knew wouldn't let you down. Great to see him saving the Pav.

I attended a 'do' at this place last weekend. The group were good, the venue was 'Carp' The best thing to do with the pavillion is detonate a small thermo nuclear device within it!!!!!!!!!!

'An Evening with ECR' ?!

Where do I get a ticket?

I have a sack load of rotting tomatoes I need to get rid of!

I jest of course. You're my hero *swoons*

Don't worry, I'm perfectly capable of making a tit of myself without any help from the audience!

An evening with ECR sounds fun and hopefully no need to bring fruit and vegetables along either. I hope he would get around to interviewing some of his contacts from the local media - failing that at least one could help with backing music of a drumming variety!

I'll have you know my nightly escort rate is considerably more than 'five dollar' old bean!
