Derek Sandy on Britain's Got Talent. Thanks to ITV.

Britain’s Got Talent star – Derek Sandy – will be bringing his unique brand of musical entertainment to Shanklin Esplanade this afternoon (Friday).

Derek will be playing a small set in an event organised by Island Roads following the completion of the recent work to upgrade the Esplanade.

Island Roads Service Director, Steve Ashman, said:

“We wanted to say thank you to the businesses and residents for their co-operation during the work and thought getting Derek, fresh from his success of BGT, along to sing a few songs would be perfect.

 “Everyone is invited to come along to see Derek perform and to enjoy the hospitality and amenities of the Esplanade.”

The Esplanade, Hope Hill and Esplanade Gardens car park and Eastcliff Promenade were all resurfaced in the recent Island Roads project.

Derek’s 30-minute performance begins at 5pm.
