Eddie said: “Yeah, it’s in the Bexhill pavilion, I just thought if things opened up on Monday… I called them up and said ‘let’s do a charity show for them that day’.

“The tickets sold out in three hours which annoyed some people but I’m sorry there are fewer tickets available due to the lockdown, or even the lockdown restrictions, there are still the two-meter rules. inside buildings

“So it’s great to spend a day at the Pavilion. It’s such a rock and roll place now, everyone from Patti Smith to Elvis Costello has played there, loads of great comedians

“I worked on the self-serve coffee shop in the 70s, but it was sort of a dying place back then and now it’s a perfect niche place and Sparks is going to play there even though the tour has probably been moved.

“Sparks was playing in all these places, a great indie band, an original indie band from afar, and they were playing in all these big cities like Glasgow and London, then Bexhill on Sea.”

Zoe replied, “Sparks put on some amazing shows, they really do. I feel a little jealous of anyone who can attend this show on Monday.

De La Warr Lodge received an emergency funding program following a decision by Rother Council leaders last year.

The pavilion is expected to lose £ 1.1million in revenue in fiscal year 2020/21, mainly due to the lockdown preventing its live events program from continuing.

A spokesperson for the De Le Warr Pavilion said: ‘On day one, theaters in the UK have been open to the public since early December, Eddie will put on a unique show of highlights from his 30-year career in comedy, all the proceeds will go to DLWP. ”
