It’s not an event the public can attend.

Instead, the event will be a video live stream on Thursday, June 11 starting 6pm until 10pm on their Facebook page.

The stream itself will be free to access but will feature a donate button to raise funds for The COVID-19 Urgent Appeal which was launched by NHS Charities Together to acknowledge and support NHS staff, volunteers and volunteers impacted by COVID-19 across the country. Remy Haudecoeur, the pier’s operations manager, said: “The money raised is funding grants to help NHS charities support NHS staff, volunteers and patients in ways above and beyond what NHS funding can ordinarily provide.
