A top 1960s tribute band will perform in Weston-super-Mare to help raise money for charity.

The Berries, a four-piece harmony group who play some of the biggest hits from the era, will be at Weston Football Club in Winterstoke Road on May 18.

Worle-based singer Chrystal will also perform some classic sixties songs 
on the night.

The event, now in its fourth year, has previously raised thousands for Weston Hospicecare and it is hoped this year’s celebration will take the total to £6,000.

Organiser Dave Kingsbury said: “It costs £4million a year to run the hospice, but only 20 per cent of the charity’s funding comes from the NHS, so I feel it is important to support the hospice, which provides all its services for free.”

All Sixties Night will take place from 8-11.30pm.

Tickets, priced £10, are available by calling either 01934 522511, 621618 or 423960.
