Back to the sixties
GAWSWORTH Hall is hosting a charity night of sixties music.
The event, Hold Tight It’s 60s Night, will be at the garden theatre on Saturday July 9.
From The Beach Boys to Cilla Black, The Monkees to Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross to Little Eva – the best songs from the era will be performed by an eightpiece covers band during the two hour spectacle.
All proceeds will be donated to Francis House Children’s Hospice.
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 summers evening concert.”
The grounds are open from 2pm for anyone wanting to have a picnic in the hall garden before the concert starts at 7.30pm.
The ‘Hold Tight its 60s Night’ will be Judy’s final fundraising event for the children’s hospice that she has supported for more than 20 years.
Since 1994, Judy helped by family, friends and volunteers, has organised summer concerts at Arley Hall and in later years the successful Tatton Park Picnic Concerts.
David Ireland, chief executive at Francis House said: “We are sad that she is retiring but can’t thank her enough for her years of hard work and dedication.”
Tickets cost £25 and are available from Francis House on 01260 223320.
