A BAND of legends from the era of the Beatles return as part of a long-running series of fund-raising gigs.

John Banner Charitable Promotions presents the Searchers at Worcester's Swan Theatre on Wednesday, April 23 and the patriotic John Banner will be hosting the St George's Day special which promises to be full of hits.

The set of hits will include the likes of Sweets For My Sweet, Needles and Pins and When You Walk in the Room.

They are still led by John McNally on six/12-string guitars and vocals and Frank Allen on bass and vocals, with long-standing member Spencer James on synthesised guitar and vocals and drummer Scott Ottaway completing the line-up.

A spine-tingling, flag-waving version of You'll Never Walk Alone will complete the evening that pays tribute to English popular music in the name of the country's patron saint.

The concert starts at 8pm and tickets are £19.50.
