Jazz at Blackham

jazz at blackham



Busy working Penshurst mum needs help over the summer holidays with chaperoning her daughter to a West End musical.

This might suit a local young school leaver/university student home for the summer - it would mean they would get free travel up to London (train, parking costs covered) and they’d just need to deliver her to the theatre and sometimes pick her up again later. A great opportunity to spend time in London going to art galleries, exhibitions, shops etc. and earn some holiday cash. Or perhaps someone who has time on their hands would like to help?

Please contact Penshurst Online if you can help.
