Lowther’s hall is alive with the sound of music

Have your say

Lowther Pavilion in Lytham is busy this week – with its Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime playing up to three performances a day plus two very different shows on Thursday and Sunday evenings.

The West Beach venue will be filled with the sound of festive favourites on Sunday for the Freckleton Brass Band’s annual Christmas concert.

Celebrating 125 years of making music the band always looks forward to its annual Lowther Christmas visit – which has regularly prove to be a sell out (weather permitting).

The evening also features the Freckleton Youth Band alongside the senior musicians with a programme heavily centred around old and new Christmas favourites.

Conductors on the night will be Paul Dalton with the senior band and Jonathan Ford with the juniors. The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £10 (adults) and £6 (children).

The Barron Knights were one of the best selling pop groups of the mid 1960s finding fame and fortune for their comedy end ups of other peoples’ hits.

Their Thursday concert – part of the group’s 50th anniversary tour – starts at 8pm. Tickets are £18.50 (concessions £17.50).
