MUSIC fans can rock the night away when a reunion gives former patrons of a now-defunct pub a chance to get together.

A reunion is being held for anyone who used to attend the Easington Village Club rock night.

Former Shotton Colliery man Paul Brown, 53, who now lives in Haswell, used to organise the event, which ran from the early 1980s until the mid-90s.

Now the popular night is set to be recreated during a gathering at Peterlee Catholic Club, in Grampian Drive, from 7pm on Saturday, April 19.

The reunion is being organised by Paul’s daughter Sam Brown, 29 and Paul Terry, who both live in South Hetton.

It is the fifth reunion for patrons of the popular rock night in the past few years.

Previous get-togethers have been held at venues including The Hearts of Oak pub, in Peterlee.

A Facebook page, called Easington Village Club Rock Night Reunion, has been set up to promote the event.

People can leave their song requests on the page.

When asked for highlights and memories of the previous reunions on the page, Paul Foggin said: “Excellent night, great music and I had fun plus it was great to see everyone again and I can’t wait for the next one.”

Hailey Wilson wrote: “It’s a great night with top-notch music.” Caroline Rowland wrote: “We all had a great night - much better venue.”

Jimmy Pockets added: “I got drunk and then wobbled home, nice.”

More than 100 people have attended previous rock night reunions. There will be a £2 cover charge on the door.
