A POPULAR South Craven band, the Swing City Big Band, which is based in Lothersdale, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year.

The band regularly plays to enthusiastic audiences at events across the region and recently played at Settle Victoria Hall and at the Ribble Valley Jazz Festival.

The band’s next gig will be a special Glenn Miller evening at the Hippodrome Theatre, in Colne.

Glenn Miller, the popular band leader of the '30s and '40s, was famous for developing his own ‘sound’ which is still loved by audiences today.

The Swing City Big Band musical maestros will be playing their repertoire featuring all the well-loved Glenn Miller numbers, including In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, American Patrol, A String of Pearls and Tuxedo Junction.

The show is being held on Saturday, July 2, at 7.30pm. Tickets can be bought from the theatre box office or online at https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/phtheatre http://theswingcitybigband.com/
