Look no further than chance to win tickets to see The Searchers

Rob George 26th Nov, 2016

AN EVENING filled with the classic sounds of The Searchers is on offer at Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall in the annual festive extravaganza from a county promoter.

John Banner will welcome the popular Mersey band for his annual Christmas show which takes place on Saturday, December 17 from 7.30pm until 10.15pm.

Since breaking through in 1963, The Searchers are second only to The Beatles as Liverpool’s finest 60s group and played their part in establishing the UK as world leaders in the music industry.

Music lovers will be treated to a solo show with no support as John McNally, Frank Allen, Spencer James and Scott Ottaway take to the stage to perform such classics as Sweets for My Sweet, Needles and Pins and Don’t Throw Your Love Away.

Combined with anecdotes, reminscences, various album tracks and B-sides plus some seasonal Christmas favourites this really is a show you cannot afford to miss.

With total record sales well in excess of 50million, the Searchers still retain their appeal to all ages.

Tickets for the show are £19.75 and are available from the Huntingdon Hall Box Office on 01905 611427
