Concert with The Houghton Weavers

Sat 9 November @ 19:00 - 21:00

We are delighted to once again share the stage with The Houghton Weavers. Tickets are priced at £15 each and will be available soon. Please note the earlier start time of 7:00PM for this concert.

Britain’s leading comedy / folk group The Houghton Weavers visit Longridge on Saturday 11th November.

Learning their craft in the folk clubs of their native North West, the group have never wavered from their original motto of “Keep Folk Smiling”.

In their time together, the band – comprising Steve Millington, David Littler and Jim Berry – have performed thousands of concerts, recorded over 30 albums, starred in several of their own highly successful BBC radio and TV series, and made countless appearances on other programmes.

They entertain their audiences with humorous jokes and antidotes and sing “popular” folk songs – from raucous traditional songs to sing-a-long favourites interspersed with some beautiful ballads and original pieces – all performed in their own inimitable style.

A wide and varied repertoire ensures that no two evenings in The Houghton Weavers’ company are ever the same.

The Houghton Weavers’ formula of entertaining folk has ensured that in that time they have enjoyed non-stop success, with a large fan club and a great following at their concerts. They can even boast a Number 1 hit in Tasmania with their perennial favourite “The Blackpool Belle”, a song that also reached Number 3 in New Zealand!

So come and join in the music and fun at Longridge Civic Hall on Saturday 11th November and enjoy an evening with The Houghton Weavers and a smile!
