AN EXCITING evening full of the sounds of the Sixties Merseybeat scene will fill Huntingdon Hall in Worcester’s Crowngate in the latest concert from a city promoter.

Worcester promoter John Banner will welcome The Searchers for his annual Christmas special next Friday (December 4) for a night of music and memories.

The popular Mersey band emerged in 1963 as part of the 60s Liverpool music scene along with the Beatles, The Mersey Beats and Gerry and the Pacemakers.

Second only to the iconic Beatles as Liverpool’s finest 60s group, The Searchers are legends from the era that transformed entertainment history forever.

Needles and Pins, Sweets for my Sweet and When You Walk In the Room will be among the hits on a night not to be missed.

Tickets for the show are £19.50 each and are available from the Huntingdon Hall Box Office on 01905 611427 or online at
