A TOP teenage band will entertain Christmas shoppers with a musical feast of festive favourites and big band classics.

Clitheroe Royal Grammar School’s Swing Band will showcase their talent at one of the Ribble Valley’s top retail venues this weekend. Shoppers at Shackletons Garden and Lifestyle Centre, Chatburn, can enjoy their musical talent on Sunday, December 4th, from 1 to 4 p.m.

The band celebrated their 10th anniversary this year with a sparkling reunion concert. Former members joined current players and enjoyed providing splendid entertainment for family, friends and supporters.

Next year the band is planning to go on its first tour outside the British Isles with a trip to Malta, where its members will play several concerts. And they will be hoping for donations from shoppers to help boost funds for their tour.

Each year the band plays fund-raising concerts to help charities and so far more than £15,000 has been raised for numerous good causes.
