A BIG band will be playing in Winsford next week to raise money for the town's hospice.

On Friday, December 3, Wychcraft Big Band will be playing a gig in Wharton in aid of St Luke's Hospice.

The festive music kicks off at 7.30pm at Christ Church.

A spokesperson said: "If you want to kick Christmas off in style and love the kind of music Michael Bublé sings then come along.

"There will be a mixture of Christmas swing numbers and classic 1940s big band, and a raffle in the interval to raise money for St Luke's Hospice.

"Tickets are £8 for an adult and £5 for a child.

"A glass of non-alcoholic mulled wine and a mince pie is included in the ticket price.

"For tickets please contact Christ Church office on office@christ-church-wharton.org.uk or phone 01606 861860."
