CLASSIC British pop group The Searchers are hosting a one-off concert in Weston – and you could win tickets to experience their music in person.

The Searchers’ career began in the 1960s and includes hits such as Sweets For My Sweet, Needles And Pins and Don’t Throw Your Love Away.

The Liverpool band, alongside other products of the Merseybeat scene such as The Beatles and The Hollies, were hugely popular both in the UK and the United States.

They have been credited with helping to secure the UK’s status as the world’s leading nation within the music industry.

The Searchers’ show at The Playhouse will include their best-known hits, alongside many album recordings, b-sides and amusing anecdotes.

A spokesman from The Playhouse said: “With total record sales well in excess of 50 million, The Searchers still have great appeal to audiences of all ages.

“They tour the globe as much today as they have done at any point during their fantastic career, which spans five decades.”

The Searchers will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, on August 19 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £21, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or online via
