Sunday Sounds Retro brings soulful tunes and free entertainment for all ages to The Village Green at beautiful Sanctuary Cove on Sunday, June 24.
With a jam-packed line-up of free, live music, brilliant family-friendly entertainment and a relaxed alfresco atmosphere, the event takes guests back in time for an aftenoon.
