A dinner dance to celebrate 1,200 years of Southchurch being inhabited will take place later this year.

Southend’s iconic venue, the Boundary in Garon Park, will host 'Sudcerca' on Saturday, October 12, from 6.30pm until midnight.

The directors of Project Southchurch are inviting key supporters to join them at the event.

The evening includes a welcome drink and a three-course meal while enjoying the outstanding musical prowess of Broadway Band.

Guests can book tables for 8 to 14 people, or individual tickets, which the team will integrate into a table plan.

The tickets, priced at £60 each, are available on a first come, first served basis.

The organisers anticipate a "great celebration" and encourage swift booking, with supporters asked to confirm ticket requests by May 31.

Queries or ticket bookings can be addressed to Nigel, on 07949 536490, or Tony on 07306 491783.

Alternatively, guests can email events.projectsouthchurch@gmail.com.
