Tom Chaplin performed at Bexhill de la Warr Pavilion last night as part of his sell-out UK tour.  The police patrolling the event were a sad reminder of this week’s events in Manchester and Tom referred to this during the concert.

Many Vinehall families past and present were able to attend – these are the ones spotted! Chaplin, Outram, Taylor, Bradley, Redstone, Ireland, Lee, Whitehead, Bidwell, Richards, Chivers, le Breton,  Ashfield, Howard-Smith, Tucker and no doubt others.

It was a tremendous performance and Tom’s voice was as good as ever. He has a new support band, including a wonderful violinist and the crowd loved the songs from his solo album ‘The Wave’ as well as some Keane hits.
