SUCCESSFUL CONCERT FOR MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT

The magnificent 400 year-old Tithe Barn at Meols Hall, Botanic Road, Southport (see photo) was the venue for a hugely successful concert on Tuesday June 18th in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We would like to thank the organisers (Val and Pam) and the Hesketh family for this opportunity.

MAGHULL VENUE CHANGES HANDS AGAIN!!

Last year the Royal British Legion in Maghull had a change of management and became the Red Lion Club. In April 2019, management changed again and we agreed new terms for the use of the club. The Teds continue to perform on the second Thursday of every month but we now play in the more cosy lounge bar rather than the concert room; and admission has increased by £1 to £6. This brings the fee in line with our other residencies at Didsbury and Grappenhall. We hope you will agree that this still represents very good value for an evenings entertainment with great jazz.
