A packed audience enjoyed a “60s Mania!” concert at Nantwich Civic Hall.

Fans were treated to two great cover bands, The Sunflowers and Meet The Beatles.

Female acoustic guitar duo The Sunflowers opened the show and warmed up the audience with classics including I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight, Stand by Me, Homeward Bound, Brown Eyed Girl, Under the Boardwalk, Ring of Fire, Suspicious Minds and You’re the One That I Want.

Meet The Beatles performed several of the Fab Four’s hits including I Saw Her Standing There, Please Please Me, Do You Want to Know a Secret, All My Loving, I Want to Hold Your Hand, I Wanna Be Your Man, A Hard Day’s Night, Can’t Buy Me Love, Eight Days a Week, Yesterday, Twist and Shout, Ticket to Ride, Help!, Lady Madonna, and Hey Jude.

Their set included a costume change and they were joined on stage by The Sunflowers for Get Back as the encore.

The dance floor was full with several audience members wearing 60s costumes including women wearing shift dresses, headband’s and knee length boots. There were even a few men with a mop-top!

The event also included David The Caricaturist, Jonathan the Magician, and U’ve Been Framed offered fun photographs of members of the audience.

More than 200 people attended the concert, organised by Crewe-based promoters Warble Events and Nantwich Town Council, which was just £10 a ticket.
