The Scream­ing Beavers to play at Scouts gig

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

SOUL band The Scream­ing Beavers will put on a spe­cial per­for­mance to help raise funds for Sut­ton Scouts and Guides.

It is hoped the mu­sic evening will at­tract around 200 peo­ple to dance the night away.

Fundraiser Louise Haughton said: “It’s a big band to have per­form at a lo­cal fundraiser and we are all hop­ing the night will be a huge suc­cess.

“Peo­ple al­ways dance to the Beavers so we are look­ing for­ward to a fun night.”

The band, based in Mac­cles­field, have played for au­di­ences in their thou­sands at sell-out con­certs such as Bolling­ton Fes­ti­val, but are just as happy play­ing smaller gigs.

The night prom­ises to fea­ture hit songs from the 60s on the At­lantic, Stax and Mo­town la­bels.

The band’s reper­toire will also in­clude fa­mous disco tunes from the 1970s.

Louise said: “It is very im­por­tant that we have fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties like this one so that we can try to keep the cost of our sub­scrip­tions down.”

Other ac­tiv­i­ties to drum up the nec­es­sary funds have in­cluded mu­sic nights with smaller lo­cal bands and quiz nights.

Mem­bers of the Scouts, and Guides as well as the Beavers and Rain­bows, also try their hand at per­form­ing them­selves on a night called’ Gang Time’ which takes place at the Scout hut once a year and will next hap­pen on Fe­bru­ary 26 and 27.

Per­for­mances in­clude a va­ri­ety of songs and plays.

The Scream­ing Beavers event will take place on Satur­day, March 5, at the Scout and Guide Group Cen­ten­nial Head­quar­ters on Church Lane and starts at 7.30pm.

There will also be a li­censed bar on the night.

Tick­ets are £10, avail­able by email­ing tick­ets.Sut­tonS­couts@ gmail.com.
