A group who in 1964 had more hits in the Top 10 than The Beatles will be gracing a Lancaster stage on the First Friday in June .

Tickets are priced £18-£19 for the show which starts at 7.30pm.

Also on First Friday, folk music will be the theme of the evening at The Dukes when the cinema screens Inside Llewyn Davis at 8pm.

After the film, Lancaster Folk Club takes over The Dukes bar with performances by the best local folk acts. Tickets for the film are priced £4-£6. Music from 9.30pm is free.

A chance to hear some more local musical talent 
is on offer at The Gregson 
with No Strings Attached at 9pm.

Crazy Hammond duo Get Carter and the insanity that is the Convulsions face off in 
this intensely exhilarating musical extravaganza. Tickets are £5.

If jazz is more to your musical taste, First Friday regular The Jazz Mansion opens its doors again at Forrest Hills, Ellel. Quay Change plus other guest artists will be performing from 8pm. Tickets are priced £15.

First Fridays promote Lancaster Arts City by encouraging residents and visitors to try something new on the district’s cultural scene on the First Friday of each month.
