Live At The Crown Web Section Headder.jpg

The place it all began. The Crown in Littlehampton was our first venue. We started our journey at The Crown in Littlehampton, and due to circumstances beyond our control, we could not return after the pandemic. A big thanks to Phill, the then manager, for all his time, effort, and support in allowing LARS Promotions to exist and grow.
