The “Friends” held their Annual Dinner and Cabaret in the Garden Suite of the Hydro Hotel on Saturday, 12 May and were joined by special guests, Chris and Natasha Jordan and Gavin Davis. Following a very pleasant meal everyone present was entertained by Grant Martins who performed many nostalgic ballads reminding us of such performers as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Matt Munro and many others. He also gave a very touching rendition of “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables” from “Les Miserables”. He will be performing again at a “Friends” event when he appears as the Male Vocalist with the Paul Davis Big Band on Sunday 1st July at 3.00pm in the Congress Theatre in the 10th Big Band Concert, “Swing Session 10” where he will be joined by Jacquie Toye, Sheila Tracey and Leanne Kyte.  The raffle raised the grand sum of £135 and everyone went home feeling good after a very pleasant evening.
