About this event
On the 16th of December we’ll be hosting a Christmas get together, joining us will be a very special guest. Like the Ghost of Christmas past this legendary figure came into our lives to regale us with stories from within our own four walls, beyond the inception of Faith In Strangers, reaching back through the annals of time. He told us of music and dancing, from a time when Margate was thriving and our dance floor was heaving.
To bring back the good times, for a one off Christmas Special we give you — DJ Crippsy, as Cripps Cringle!
DJ Crippsy started playing records in 1976 at the Galleon Tavern in Dreamland, then the West Coast Diner and The Club Imperial in 1977 along with Bar Majestic below. Later Crippsy played at the Bowlers Arms Pub (below Faith In Strangers) but to top it all off Crippsy played the the famous Starlight Club which sat in the very building that we occupy today. Flash forward to Christmas present and Crippsy is a regular at Margate Soul Festival, Imperial Bar, the Harbour Arm, Winter Gardens, The Oxford and many other local venues.
Expect a mixture of soul, funk, disco and maybe the odd dash of Christmas cheer.
