The Fortunes

The Fortunes

The Fortunes were formed in Rugby in Warwickshire in 1963 and still perform to appreciative audiences all around the world.
Fortunes members Michael Smitham and Eddie Mooney have been with the band for nearly fifty years collectively, and Michael is now the longest serving member of the band since the untimely passing of founding members Rod Allen and Barry Pritchard.

Due to recent illness, they were asked to fulfil an engagement as a duo, which they did to rapturous applause!
Whilst still performing with The Fortunes, Michael and Eddie now perform regularly as the ‘Sounds of The Fortunes’.
Lots of hits, lots of stories and anecdotes about their many years in the music business! A must see show……
Not only The Fortune’s Hits but many of the biggest selling songs from the golden Era’s of music the 60’s & 70’s

COVID-19 Update

05/01/2021

COVID Update March Unity

We are hopeful that the March events will go ahead at Unity resort. However we do expect the next few weeks to be very difficult until the vaccine rollout gets going, with the country in lockdown. Therefore anyone not comfortable paying balance due in early January can defer until 23rd February, without incurring any late payment fees.

USA Guesthouse Graceland May

We are also hopeful that this event will take place and are in contact with the Guesthouse.
It also depends on the speed of the vaccine rollout. A final decision will be made by early March.

Other Event Updates

Events at Durrant Hotel and Unity resort for 2021 will go ahead as planned with a different schedule of entertainment (number of acts will not change).

Unity will feature a festival all-dayer style with bands at 2.30pm, 4.00 pm, 5.30pm, 7.00pm and 8.30pm.

Durrant Hotel will begin with evening meal at 6pm.

We have proved with our Elvis week at Hemsby that events CAN operate in the current climate very successfully.

If you do not wish to attend for ANY reason we have no legal obligation to transfer or refund deposits as the events WILL be going ahead.

We have spent six months transferring deposits and cancelling events and are not in a position to be as flexible as we would normally be, therefore transfers and refunds are NOT possible. Unless you can prove you were part of the original group advised to shield by the government in March, are infected with coronavirus at the time of the event, or are in a local lockdown area at the time of the event that doesn’t allow travel on holidays (most do). In these exceptional circumstances we will look at bookings on an individual basis.

As the 10pm curfew looks a mid-to-long term policy we will all have to learn to adapt and we are certain that our events will be a great success

Hopefully most sensible people will recognise this situation is not of our making and understand our decisions designed to protect the long term viability of our business and livelihoods of the professional musicians we employ.

The above is subject to change based on any government change in its policy.
