<p>Despite the unpredictable weather throughout the week and one or two early showers on the day, the sun shone yet again to give the <strong>audience of well over 2000 people</strong> a fine, dry summers evening to enjoy the show. Dozens of partygoers had really entered into the spirit of the event by arriving in their funky 70's outfits & long before the ABBA tribute band took to the stage they were merrily doing the 'conga' around the arena area.<br /> <br />The real stars of the show were <strong>'ABBA Reunion'</strong>, the critically acclaimed ABBA tribute band who performed two one-hour sets to the baying crowd. Supported by a professional event DJ who hosted a 70's themed disco, they had the whole audience dancing & singing along to all the massively popular hit songs from the famous Swedish foursome.<br /> <br />It was a night the whole family could enjoy, with fairground rides for the children (who were admitted free of charge) & picnics welcome, mums & dads could enjoy a great full evening of entertainment without spending the earth.<br /> <br />As a result of the fantastic support <strong>another £10,000 will now be donated</strong> to the Spinal Research charity <a href=""></a>, who are the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop reliable treatments for paralysis caused by a broken back or neck. Every year more than 800 people in the UK and Ireland are paralysed following an injury to their spinal cord, Spinal Research raises money to fund research into clinical treatments as well as vital basic science research. With last years 'Queen' concert being equally as popular, it now seems an annual charity concert is sure to be included in the calendar of events hosted each year by the 'friendly circuit'. The two highly successful concerts that have now been held at Mallory Park have <strong>raised in excess of £25,000 which given the current economic climate is fantastic and a massive tribute to all involved</strong> in anyway.<br /> <br />It takes an awful lot of hard work to organise and it is extremely stressful however, with so many people having such a brilliant night and the charity benefitting to such an extent, it makes it all worthwhile.<br /> <br />I'd like to <strong>thank anyone involved in any way with the organising, promoting, hosting etc</strong> of the concert, without whom I'd find it very difficult to get the whole event off the ground in the first place. Also the <strong>crowd of over 2000 people who came along</strong>, please be assured that only the charity benefits from this event, as all involved very kindly give their time or services either free of charge or at heavily discounted rates. Your kind support is very much appreciated, I do hope if you came, that you had a fantastic night out & very much<strong> look forward to seeing you all again next year!<br /></strong></p>/b5332b3e-352c-496f-a64b-b1ffe7ad5a4a.jpg/cb669b1e-b89a-489f-a480-3f405e7d895e.jpg
