The Queensbury Community 1940’s Day Committee are trying to raise funds to put on another 1940’s Day for Saturday 18th June 2016. To enable this we are hosting this Irish night at the George. As usual we have to pay the band. Please make a donation to allow to do this. Any surplus will go towards funding the 1940’s Day which has free entry to all in the afternoon. It will be an outstanding community event.
