Events are being run by Damien Fell and Mark Dickson, who sub-let from the pier leaseholders to provide entertainment.

Damien explained: “It struck us that there was not a lot planned on the pier for the summer so we had to move quickly and have come up with a full schedule of events. There will be space for local traders and brewers and we are hoping to create a fun, lively, family atmosphere where people can enjoy something different each time they come. Tickets for the Friday night tribute bands will never be more than £10.”
