The popular Banbury band The Lee Malvern Four will be the headline act during a evening of entertainment at Brackley Football Club next month.

They formed in the late 1960s, but after several years of success in the Banbury area they folded in 1973. Lead guitarist Chris Tobin said: “Back in December 2010 we were asked to reform for a charity gig and to our delight and surprise we have been in demand for more gigs with both Nigel (Jonty) Barrett and Ken Jarman on drums, but not at the same time.

“Perhaps not as tight as we used to be, but we’re having a lot of fun which seems to be the key to our success with our more recent following we’re more than happy to roll back the years.”

The evening of rock and roll and 60s covers takes place on Saturday, September 15, at the club in Churchill Way between 8pm and midnight.

Tickets cost £6 per adult or £11 for two from Gems Stationers and Davies and Partners, or on the door. There will also be a raffle in aid of Katharine House Hospice and guests should bring their own food.
