The Extreme Cellists Jeremy Dawson, Clare Wallace and James Rees will be playing in Worthing as part of their tour of all UK piers.

The Extreme Cellists, known for their performances in out-of-the-ordinary places such as on cathedral rooftops and summits of mountains, are undertaking a 14-day whirlwind seaside tour - which will see them on Worthing Pier.

Until August 4, cellists Jeremy Dawson, 40, and Clare Wallace, 56, from Sheffield, and James Rees, 36, from Chester, are visiting all 58 surviving piers in Great Britain, giving a performance on each in aid of two charities: Alzheimer’s Society and CHICKS.

Beginning in Scotland, they are touring the coast of Britain in a clockwise direction, covering approximately 2,500 miles.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) will see them on the Sussex coast, starting in Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton, through to Worthing Pier at 3.30pm and finishing in Bognor at 5.30pm.

Cellist Jeremy said: “We aim to raise in excess of £5,000 for two very good causes this summer, and we hope that we’ll introduce cello music to holidaymakers who might not be expecting it!”

The Extreme Cellists were formed in 2003 and have since raised over £38,000 for charities by playing in various extreme locations.
