Cray Wanderers Events Curtain Raiser – Flamingo Park, Friday 8th September – 6.45 pm

A note for all our supporters of a special Cray Wanderers Events Curtain Raiser taking place at Flamingo Park on Friday 8th September.  The event will start at 6.45 pm.

To celebrate the start of a season of musical live events at Cray Wanderers new home there will be a chance for Cray Wanderers supporters to be part of a new era for the club.  

On the night there will be a Cray Wanderers History presentation from noted local historian and poet, Richard Bowdery highlighting the storied history of London’s oldest Football club.

There will then be a chance to hear the latest ground development news with CEO Sam Wright and a Q & A session after for supporters.

This will be followed by the exciting sounds of the 3 Masons band and a collection of rock favourites fronted by Wands season ticket holder Bill Bevan while at the interval there will be a buffet spread available ahead of the band returning to stage.

All for the cost of less than an adult match ticket, £10 available to purchase at Cray Wanderers home and away games.  Please note these will be physical tickets rather than online on this occasion and will be available to purchase at the Wands remaining four pre-season games and early home and away league matches.

The club are looking to progress on and off the field and the season of musical events promises to be one which benefits not only the club financially but raises the profile of the club to an outside audience, our history and the community benefits of the stadium and clubhouse.


A note for Cray Wanderers supporters of a big live music event taking place at Flamingo Park on Saturday 23rd September.

Playing live on the brand new Flamingo Park stage will be South London Rhythm and Blues band Nine Below Zero who will perform ahead of a UK Tour with Canvey Island legends Dr. Feelgood.

Nine Below Zero are no ordinary Joe’s. The band first started out in 1978 formed by longtime frontman Dennis Greaves as Stan’s Blues Band and after two years of playing the pub and club circuit and changing their name to Nine Below Zero were signed by iconic record label A&M in 1980. They released their first album, Live At the Marquee in July 1980 and played the Hammersmith Odeon later that year. In 1981 they supported fellow mod icons The Who! and The Kinks and appeared on TV on the Old Grey Whistle Test and South Bank Show.

One of their televisual highlights was their appearance on the first episode of The Young Ones in November 1982 and their third album The Third Degree was released in 1983.

After a six year hiatus the band reformed in 1990 for the 10th anniversary celebrations and have continued to record albums and tour extensively ever since. They have supported some of the biggest names in music history, Sting, Eric Clapton, Ray Davies, Chuck Berry, Squeeze, The Stranglers, Bruce Foxton’s From the Jam and many more and have also played prestigious blues festivals in Europe, US and Canada and played the Acoustic stage at Glastonbury in 2016.

The band have released 24 albums and this year sees the 40th anniversary of the Third Degree LP. NBZ have recently been on a three night tour of Scotland with Big Country and a band renowned as a major live attraction will be bringing their unique blues style to Flamingo Park for which we aim to be the first of a number of top rank live attractions.

With many thanks for the great impresario work of Terry Smith for organising the event and also along with Alan Richardson and Gary Defroand for upgrading the stage facilities and maintenance at Flamingo Park over the last few months.
