Great night of entertainment for Samaritans

The other Saturday evening, myself and three friends attended a concert at Pendle Hippodrome entitled “Midsummer Melodies”, organised by Nelson Ladies Civic Choir in aid of the Samaritans.

CAPTION: The Flat Cap Pack: Liam, Eric and Brian (s).

They were joined on stage by Colne Orpheus Glee Union and the Flat Cap Pack.

What a wonderful evening it was with a very varied programme. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

How disappointed the organisers must have been with the number attending, maybe down to not enough publicity and the nice weather.

I don’t remember seeing any adverts for it in the West Craven area – we only went after seeing it publicised in the Heritage Centre in Barrowford the previous Tuesday.

The admission price was only £7 with concessions at £5. Where else could you get first class entertainment at that price?
