Fans of the swinging 60s will be pleased to know a local band are still rocking after 50 years.

The Bootlacers will play their annual get-together gig at the Vale of Lune Rugby Club this Saturday night (October 18) from 8pm to midnight.

Graham Davies, Mike Wilding and Brian Holmes are the three original members who will be playing on the night accompanied by Mark Boulton on keyboards.

On a couple of numbers, the grandson of original bass player Trevor Owen will also perform.

One original member of the band, Mel Williams, has passed away but his guitar will be used by the band on the night in memory of him.

“It’s 50 years since we first played at the town hall for the Priory Ball – we were all at school the following day!” said Graham.

There will be a charity raffle in aid of Lancaster Cancer Care and tickets at the door will be £7.50 per head.
