HOW many people remember tales of parents and grandparents tripping the light fantastic with the Fred Hudson Dance Band, way back in the day?

The band played regularly at the Welfare building at the corner of Cavendish Street and Broughton Road - now part of Morrisons car park - and also at the Clifford Hall, at the back of the Black Bull pub.

Doubtless the band played in other locations too with a fine array of instruments and gifted players to kick out a whole medley of songs and tunes.

From the look of the photograph there appeared to be a singer on this evening. We wonder who it is.
