Visitors and staff at the Winter Gardens, on Church Street, joined resident band Pineapple Jack in the Mazzei Café, 135 years after it first opened in 1878.

Lynda Baker, front of house manager, said: “We’ve got a really busy few months ahead with so many touring shows and big events and it was nice to take a few minutes to celebrate what a wonderful place the Winter Gardens is.”
