Have your say

Regulars at The Hole in the Wall pub in Spalding had the perfect excuse to celebrate events at Wimbledon with a live performance by soul and reggae vocalist Della (40).

The self-styled “something for everyone” singer and entertainer sang a selection of dancefloor hits by the like of UB40, Jackie Wilson and Bob Marley at the Francis Street pub on Friday.

Della was the latest in a series of live music events at the pub recently taken over by Pete Williams who also owns The Punchbowl in New Road.

It was the first ever show by the Peterborough-based singer in Spalding and she will be following it up with another gig, this time at The Punchbowl on August 4th.

Della, who has been singing professionally for five years, said: “We had a great time, the crowd ebbed and flowed and there were moments when it was really busy inside the pub.

“I tried to make the show really eclectic and there was a song that everyone could sing along and dance to, so I enjoyed it.

“It was lovely to talk to people who wanted to spread the word about my music and I’d love to come back to Spalding again.”
