Lightcliffe Cricket Club will come alive to the sound of music when talented local artists take to the stage for “Music in the Marquee”.

The well-established annual event, held outside at the cricket clubhouse, is on Saturday week, July 15 from 8pm.

The stellar line-up includes highly regarded local musician Aidan Edwards, singer-songwriter Mick Wood, former LCC star Bob Horne, and top class performer Yosser Hughes.

They will be complemented by talented singer Ricardo Edward, who mixes cutting rock with tear-soaked ballads.

Further big names will be added to the bill in the coming days with a ‘very special guest’ currently in contract negotiations.

It promises to be a musical night to remember, with people from across Calderdale flocking to the club to sample top class music in wondrous surroundings off Wakefield Road.

Tickets are just £6 for adults and £3 for juniors in advance or £7 and £3.50 on the night.

For further details, ring Bob Horne at the ticket hotline on 07776 211891.

There will be a delicious hot supper and seats in the marquee, plus there will also be a well-stocked bar selling chilled lagers, beers, ciders and wines.

Bob said: “We are hopeful of fine weather, top class music and a sell-out audience.

“Last year the club was packed as people enjoyed a triumphant range of superb songs.

“The line-up is bigger and better this year, with something for everyone on a bill which rivals Glastonbury for its rich diversity. From ballads to blues, rock to R ‘n’ B, and Indie to dance, the Lightcliffe Cricket Club music night has it all.

“We are looking forward to a fantastic evening, and seeing people old and new at the club. See you on the front row.”
