Big Thong Ender 2014

Last years revised Upperthong Gala was a big success and we are happy to report that it is back for 2014. We have made a few changes based on feedback from last year…..so it is going to be bigger and better for 2014.

Friday 27th June
The chance for the village adults to get together and have a huge party. This year sees live music from O.K.T.C in the Upperthong Village Hall. 

OKTC are a professional 4 piece party band hailing from Yorkshire. Specialising in a high energy performance of many rock/pop anthems from ’60s to present day.!!

  • £12.50 Tickets
  • £3 – Pie and Pea Supper
  • Doors Open 7pm till 1am
  • Happy Hour 7 till 8pm
  • In the Upperthong Village Hall

We’ve kept the food simple with pie and peas taking center stage – pies from Hinchcliffes !! French beer on tap and dancing until very late.

There are only 120 tickets and are absolutely  guaranteed to sell out well in advance – last year they were sold out a month before the event. Tickets will be priced at £10. It was awesome last year and it’s going to be awesome this year !

Please join us to eat, drink, be merry and spread good old Upperthong village community spirit. Basically, it’s going to be an action packed day not to be missed.


We’ll be collecting in your area from 9th June onwards. 

Weekend Theme

Don’t forget the theme for the weekend is the Tour de France – of course. Everyone else will be doing it, so we figured why not join in.

 Support Your Community

Any profits from the weekend will go directly to maintaining the fabric of the Village Hall and undertaking various urgent upgrades. On behalf of the Upperthong Community, we will also donate 10% of any profits to Help for Heroes. So please come along and support your new Big Thong Ender and get involved in the success of the community.
