Southern Spirit Charity Fundraiser – Rock Against Prostate Cancer

Saturday 2nd September 2017 at 7.30pm.  Venue and bar open at 7pm.

Join us for an evening in the company of Rock and Blues band Southern Spirit who are staging this vital fundraiser with the help of the Under Ground Theatre.


The Da Vinci robot is an important piece of equipment for treating prostate cancer. Through the use of a console, the surgeon is able to perform extremely delicate procedures with great accuracy and with minimal impact on the patient. Each console costs £2200, and Eastbourne Hospital is hoping to raise sufficient money to purchase five of these (£11000). This will enable other surgeons to perfect their ability to perform procedures in prostate cancer treatments.

Although not affiliated to the hospital in any way, the Eastbourne-based band Southern Spirit have committed to helping to fund-raise for this cause. Their rock and blues music is cover versions of groups  from the ’60s through to the ’80s.

30% of ticket sales will go the the Under Ground Theatre, which is itself The Eastbourne Arts Centre Trust charity.

The main bulk – the 70% of ticket sales and all donations raised on the night – will all go to Eastbourne Hospital.

The main bulk – the 70% of ticket sales and all donations raised on the night – will all go to our charity under the auspices of Friends of Eastbourne Hospital.
