Tuesday 18 October 2016, 7.30pm – Floral Pavilion, New Brighton.
For the third successive year, Liverpool’s legendary band The Merseybeats will perform a charity concert to support Relate Cheshire & Merseyside. The 60’s music themed night will help raise funds for expanding relationship counselling to local families and young people, as well as support efforts to promote Relate’s wider vision of encouraging conversations about wellbeing and healthy relationships.
Tony Crane, lead singer and guitarist of the Merseys, says he and the band are very keen to show their support Relate Cheshire & Merseyside. “I had known friends of mine, famous people, who had problems with their relationships and had been greatly helped by Relate. It is a very good charity and it is a very good cause to raise money for”.
The Merseybeats first started performing over fifty years ago at The Cavern Club, Liverpool’s hottest nightclub in the 60’s, and played alongside The Beatles and many other bands around in that era. The evening is being billed as a night of 60’s hit records and a celebration of Merseyside’s musical heritage. “We will be telling stories about our times when we first recorded the songs and played at the Cavern alongside The Beatles. We pay tribute to other artists who came out at the same time as us and include some of their famous songs”. With this spirit of musical camaraderie in mind, the band have announced that they will be supported on the night by another well-known 60’s band, The Dakotas.
Relate Cheshire & Merseyside will also be drawing their annual charity raffle on the night which includes fabulous prizes donated by Liverpool FC, Everton FC, Tranmere Rovers, The Philharmonic Hall, Fazenda, Everyman Theatre, John Bishop and many more. Raffle tickets are available now and can bought directly from RCM’s office, located on the first floor of the LCVS Building.
Tickets for the concert are £19.50 and can be bought from the Floral Pavilion Theatre ringing the Box Office on 0151 666 0000 or online by visiting www.floralpavilion.com.
