BBC journalist and newsreader Sir Martyn Lewis is bringing his party piece to a benefit gig for the campaign to Save the Greys this week.

Sir Martyn is backing the campaign to create a community freehouse in the heart of Hanover at the event on Wednesday (20 December).

The event is taking place at the Greys, in Southover Street, Brighton, from 8pm to 11pm.

The Lewis family Christmas Hour will feature A Child’s Christmas in Wales, the much-loved Dylan Thomas poem, at what is billed as a relaxed, festive Yuletide event, with music, readings and some seasonal songs.

Sylvie Lewis

The TV presenter was booked by local singer and songwriter Sylvie Lewis, who is also an acoustic music promoter.

She persuaded her dad – indeed, he took very little persuading – to support the project with this and other pieces.

Sharon Lewis

Sylvie teams up with Sharon Lewis, one half of the folk duo Pooka, to perform as The Lewis Sisters (no relation).

It promises to be a unique event in the most intimate surroundings for a unique cause. The Greys is at 105 Southover Street, Brighton, BN2 9UA.
