A 1960s rock ‘n’ roll spectacular is the focal point of a major fundraising event for West Country based cancer charity Hope for Tomorrow.

The event is the first anniversary follow-up to last year’s world premiere of the film Chance Encounter, which raised almost £27,000 for the charity.

The Chance Encounter Anniversary Project event takes place on May 30 at the Regal Theatre with four bands - among the stars will be Cliff Hall, best known as the keyboard player with The Shadows.

Last year almost 200 people travelled along the restored 22-mile West Somerset Railway line from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead.

This year the same dining experience will be recreated with passengers able to enjoy lunch and tea prepared and cooked by chefs from Claire’s Kitchen, based in Wootton Courtenay, and Hywel Jones, the Michelin starred executive chef at Lucknam Park Hotel and Spa.
