Brighouse will turn the clock back to the 1960s this weekend as the Brighouse Business Initiative launches its latest attraction.

Organisers are holding their themed event alongside the annual spring street market and they hope it will be as popular as the 1940s Weekend in June.

Anne Colley, the new chairperson of the BBI, said: “Following numerous requests from the public for more festivals we are pleased to bring the 1960s to Brighouse for the weekend.

“It will run alongside the local food and crafts spring market taking over the town centre and we hope to fill the town centre with the” Sounds of the Sixties.”

The roads will be closed for the market and artists, groups and singers who will perform the music of the era.

Vintage cars and motorcycles will line Bethel street car park and a resident DJ to get visitors dancing.

The stage at Bradford Road has 60’s groups, together with solo artists from the era, such as Elvis Presley, singing popular songs and music.

In Thornton Square there will be more live music to entertain and bring back the happy memories of the 1960’s.”

The Beatles tribute act ‘the Cheatles’ will be performing at the Assembley Rooms on Saturday.

Seats can be booked at Ryecorn Wholefoods, Bethel Street, or Harrison Lord, Bradford Road, or on-line at www.brighousecinema.co.uk. Tickets are also available on the door. Visit www.visitbrighouse.co.uk for more details or ring 01484 711835
