A popular night of Sixties music and entertainment returns to the garden theatre at Gawsworth Hall, near Macclesfield, on Saturday July 9, in aid of Francis House Children’s Hospice.

Concert goers can enjoy a two-hour live extravaganza packed with all the greatest songs from music’s most memorable decade.

Over 35 toe-tapping hit singles from the swinging Sixties will be performed by a multi-instrumental eight-piece band featuring great harmonies and authentic musical arrangements.

The cast of professional musicians, singers and dancers will take the audience on a rollercoaster ride of hits from The Beach Boys to Cilla Black, The Monkees to Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross to Little Eva.

Judy Bailey, events organiser for Francis House said: “As a Gawsworth resident I’ve been to many of the summer concerts at Gawsworth Hall and I thought wouldn’t it be fantastic to hold a concert there for Francis House. The theatre setting is beautiful and the hall as a backdrop lit up at night is a super venue for a summer evening concert.”

The grounds are open from 2pm for anyone wanting to have a picnic in the hall garden before the concert starts at 7.30 pm.

The Hold Tight, it’s 60s Night will be Judy’s final fundraising event for the children’s hospice which she has supported for more than 20 years.

Tickets cost £25 and are only available from Francis House, by calling Judy on 01260 223320 or emailing:
