The World Cup starts tomorrow, Thursday 14 June (lest we did not know) with the Group A match Russia v Saudi Arabia at 16:00.

Bay Life will be in the Bay Hotel in Pevensey Bay at 7:00pm, Monday 18 June, to capture the moment that England begins their campaign.

The feel good factor is somewhat muted as the country prepares to be disappointed, but nonetheless we will be there from the start, as the Bay Hotel gives us the big screen treatment

Tunisia v England that kicks off at 19:00.

Come and join us for the photoshoot with our house photographer, Chris Racher. England bowler hats are now already on site in preparation.

Special thanks to Hazel Lee at Over the Moon Party Shop for supplying us with the England bowlers, which, along with the bunting, we are told are beginning to sell well at the shop.

On the Over the Moon Facebook page Hazel said, “we have gone World Cup mad! Hats with glitter, hats with bells, face paint, banners, bunting, noisy things, inflatable things, tiaras, car flags, car noses…. you name it we’ve got it!!!”.

For the second Group G match, England v Panama, Sunday 24 June, we will be at the Castle Inn. For the third match, England v Belgium, 28 June, we will be at the Aqua Bar.

Come on England. For Queen, Country, the Duke of and Duchess of Sussex and Nobby Stiles, Come on England.
