Back to the six­ties

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

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.
