The free music night will celebrate all the greatest Ska music from The Specials to Madness.

The theatre will welcome a host of DJs to join in the Ska celebration from 8pm until late. Skaville takes place every last Saturday of each month.

The event, organised by Kalimba Events, has been running for just over a year and visitors are increasing each time, says one of the organisers, DJ Steve Middlesbrough. He said: “It is going really well, we did the first one at the start of the Seaside Specialized Festival that took place at the theatre the other week, we took over the Friday slot. The festival was a great success.”

Kalimba Events is also looking for any Ska bands from the area who would like to be a part of the event, call 01524 424 303 for more.
