County musician back in town
A MUSICIAN born in Worcestershire is promising an evening of nostalgia as he takes a trip down memory lane next month.
Tom Harding, who came into this world in the old Ronkswood hospital in Worcester and attended Droitwich High School, returns to the county as part of The Sensational 60s Experience show at Malvern Theatres.
The lead singer and guitarist of The Union GapUK takes to the stage of the Forum Theatre on Thursday, March 1, bringing him full circle as he used to attend gigs at the Winter Gardens in his youth.
He said: “I have very fond memories of Malvern. I am really looking forward to it and I still have friends in the area.
“It’s going to be a thrill to go back and some old faces as well. I am going to make every effort to have a wander around in the town.”
The show also features The Tremeloes, Herman’s Hermits and The Dreamers, who are bound together by compere Alan Mosca from Freddie and The Dreamers.
“It’s a great show and it’s been well received around the country. It’s all geared towards nostalgia and is a great night for the younger members of the audience, not just the older ones.
“Hopefully we will make some new friends and the audience goes away having had a good time and come back to see us again.”
The current line-up, which is completed by Mike Ellis, Gerard Rogers and Barry Ruther, continue to keep the music of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap alive as they play tunes such as Young Girl and Lady Willpower.
Proceedings will close in grand fashion, with all the acts brought together on stage before the curtain falls.
Fans will be able to make the most of a meet and greet session after the performance, where they can chat with the musicians and collect autographs.
Hit after hit will be played from 7.30pm and tickets cost £23.50.
