A TRIBUTE TO ROY ORBISON AND THE BEATLES Just imagine it’s 30th September 1987 and Roy Orbison is in the Coconut Grove Nightclub in Los Angeles recording the sensational Black and White Night. Relive this golden evening as Barry Steele transports you back to one of Roy Orbison’s greatest performances. The Complete Beatles are one of the UK’s Premier tributes to the Fab Four, and have toured in their own show and perform regularly with Gerry and the Pacemakers. Both Barry and The Complete Beatles will be delivering the classics from both the Fab Four and The Big “O” just as in 1963 when both these legends actually toured the UK together. During this tour Roy Orbison and The Beatles forged life long friendships, which lasted right through to the creation of The Travelling Wilburys, whose music also features in this production. This is a concert that is unique - this is “The concert they did give”.

This new and exciting initiative is being championed by The Civic Hall to help promote information exchange between arts groups, individual and patrons. There are many groups in the area each giving up a lot of time and effort to promote themselves and their particular areas of arts interests. By sharing resources, experiences and working together in partnership we should be able to identify new opportunities, promote joint working and eventually introduce links on the web.

For further details and information on how your arts group could become involved please contact Tim Norton on 024 7637 6705
