NEWS FLASH FROM VIC SMITH, THE ROYAL OAK, THURSDAY 25TH. FEBRUARY'Tomorrow's (Thursday 25th February) appearance by Ken Hall & Peta Webb at the Royal Oak in Lewes has had to be postponed because of a family crisis and hospitalisation. Given the late nature of this, we will not be trying to book an alternative guest but will be having a Free Admission Open Night as an alternative. We will, of course, be offering Peta & Ken an alternative date when they can see their way clear to think about these things. Our thoughts are with Ken at this very difficult time.'
