60s music night to raise cash for Cleethorpes Memorial Hall restoration fund
GET back into the swing of the sixties!
If you like music by the Beatles, The Kinks, The Who and The Rolling Stones, then Cleethorpes Memorial Hall on Friday, December 14, is the place to be.
Organisers of Back To The Sixties, Alan Gladding and Greg Webb, are hoping for a groovy turnout at the event, which will be raising money for the Memorial Hall restoration fund.
Alan is part of the band The Marvinettes, who will be playing on the night and he is joined by Greg on the guitar, Day Burman on bass guitar and Kris Edwards on drums.
Alan, from Cleethorpes, said he last played at the venue in the sixties and he believes it is important to keep it going.
"It is the last building in the area for entertainment, with the Winter Gardens and The Leaking Boot gone," he said.
"It's such a lovely building and tickets so far for the show are selling fast – we have already sold 300."
Alan said back in the groovy era he used to have long red hair and flares.
He jokes: "If you remember the sixties then you weren't there!
"It was a fun, free time with a lot of love and I have lots of fond memories in Cleethorpes".
Also playing will be Generations Apart which includes Alan Berry and Josh Scott. There will be lots of favourites from The Who, The Rolling Stones and, of course, The Beatles Greg, 61, who also owns Twelve Bar Music in Cleethorpes, has been following music since he was 17.
He said: "The sixties were the best years. I used to wear a smart suit with short hair.
"This event will be great for all those music lovers who are fans of all the great tunes we used to boogie to."
The event begins at 7.30pm and finishes at 11.30pm. Tickets are £5 and can be bought from Twelve Bar Music, Cleethorpes, Tourist Information Centre in the library or from Alan by calling 07867 657514.
