ENP Newswire - 25 August 2014

Release date- 23082014 - Two Guernsey telecoms companies are working together to help islanders enjoy the long weekend with two family-friendly events.

JT is supporting the last of the 2014 Cobo Bay Balcony Gigs on Monday 25th August and Sure's Big Screen will be showing three films each day from Saturday 23rd August through to Monday 25th August.

Live on the Cobo Bay Hotel balcony on Monday will be visiting group, The Really Hot Chili Peppers supported by guitarist Pete Frampton, originally from Guernsey, who comes back each year to play with local musicians, jamming on concert favourites from Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton and BB King.

JT (Guernsey) Deputy Managing Director, Tamara O'Brien said: 'We have supported the Cobo Bay Balcony Gigs for four years as part of our commitment to the community and they have once again been a huge success. Everyone loves the last Summer Bank Holiday weekend, and we want to make sure that we can all get out and enjoy the weather while we can, and what better excuse than outside entertainment, especially as it is free for everyone to attend. Last August Bank Holiday was the largest ever attendance so we are all very much looking forward to another great family focussed weekend at Cobo.'

Sure's Big Screen once again offers a great line-up of films in the open air for all the family. On Saturday, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs is at 2.30pm, followed by The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel at 5pm and then Last Vegas at 7.30pm. On Sunday, the sing-a-long version of Frozen will be shown at 2.30pm, Ghostbusters at 5pm and Philomena at 7.30pm. On Sundays, the timings have changed to allow people to go to the films and enjoy the live music so Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy is on at 11am followed by Mary Poppins at 12.45pm and then the last film of the seven day event will be Anchorman 2.

'There's been a fantastic start to this year's Sure Big Screen and we have already seen hundreds of people coming down to enjoy the free event. We have a really varied schedule over the Bank Holiday weekend and we're expecting Frozen on Sunday afternoon to attract the biggest audience. The generosity of two of the Channel Islands' largest companies will mean that Monday will be a great day at Cobo for islanders of all ages with three very popular films and some great live music in between,' said Jessica Bisson, marketing and PR manager for Sure.
