How lucky are the residents of East Grinstead to have the fantastic Chequer Mead Theatre in their community.

My husband and I travelled all the way from Upminster in Essex to see The Chip and Chesney Hawkes, Father & Son Tour and we loved your theatre. The atmosphere was electric and was the perfect setting for this fabulous show , the intimate auditorium showed all the charm and charisma that Chip Hawkes possesses has rubbed off onto Chesney as they entertained the excited audience along with Jodie Hawkes on drums and Gary Nuttall on guitar. The only British father and son both to have had a number one in the UK, Chip with ‘Silence is Golden’ in 1967 and Chesney’s ‘One and Only’ in 1991.

For the finale the audience was in for a treat when they were joined on stage by Rick Westwood, who was also in The Tremeloes and Mick Clarke of The Rubettes and everyone was on their feet.

Chequer Mead is a fantastic theatre and if I lived local to it I would be going again and again.
