ENTREPRENEUR Peter Barton says music and comedy fans will continue to have the opportunity to enjoy safe, top class entertainment at his Barnoldswick Music and Arts Centre.

The venue, in Rainhall Road, Barnoldswick, has just announced rescheduled dates for 2022 as well as remaining dates for this year and next.

The venue also continues to host a whole array of rising artists, too – across all genres; Folk, Acoustic, Country, Alternative and more.

“I am determined that the people of our corner of Lancashire and beyond still have the chance to experience live entertainment through these unprecedented times”, said Peter.

“It is so important for everyone’s well-being that they can relax in a safe environment and enjoy some fabulous music”.

The rescheduled A Night On The Toon with Spike, front man of Geordie rock legends, The Quireboys, will take place on February 6.

The audience will be treated to an ‘intimate evening’ of tunes and stories from across Spike’s colourful life in Rock’n’Roll.

A spokesperson said: “It takes some serious bottle, Jack Daniel’s, perhaps, and a good deal of ambition to up sticks at the age of 17 and seek fame and fortune in the big smoke. But Spike has always boasted both in abundance.

“When the charismatic frontman formed The Quireboys in 1984 with songwriting partner Guy Bailey few predicted anything but a glorious failure for this quirky north-south alliance.Yet within six years the band was riding high with a number two album and Spike was confirmed as a major international star.

“The Quireboys is, and always has been, about having a good time and playing rock n roll you can sing and dance to”.

Several of the just-announced shows are to benefit Concerts For The Kids a charity set up in 2017 by Peter and his wife Julie to benefit Alder Hey Childrens’ Hospital where Peter and Julie’s grandson received life-saving treatment.

Other performances to to look out for this month and next include a rescheduled date for John ‘Rhino’ Edwards of Status Quo; from Italy, Eliana Gargnelutti; Florida, USA’s Midnite Johhny Band; and Steve Gibbons Band Up Close and Personal.

An intimate Audience With Kyla Brox ; an acoustic night with PLUK and the Southern Rock of the Tom Kilner Band.
