A retro night promising music from The Supremes to Swingout Sister kicks off a year of events at Lancaster’s premier community centre.

The ‘Real Music disco’ has become a tradition at the Gregson Centre for fans of when music was indeed real, in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

You can go along this Friday night (January 16) and dance in the Main Hall to new wave, rock, pop, Motown and soul, glam , punk,indie, cheesy and not so cheesy vintage hit tunes. It runs from 8.30pm to 11.55pm and admission is £4 (£2 concessions).

Also coming up at the Moor Lane centre is a Burns Night celebration on Saturday, January 24.

With free admission from 7pm to 11.55pm, this will celebrate the life and times of Scotland’s favourite son and bard, Robert Burns, with haggis, neeps and tatties and readings of Bruns’ poems. Table booking is advised and the normal menu will still be available.

On Friday, February 6 from 7pm, the Gregson will launch a new night called The Olive Groove where you’re invited to enjoy a leisurely drink upstairs in the Olive Bar, accompanied by top quality live music from Howard Haigh and friends.

And on Sunday, February 8, the Don’t Go Into the Cellar theatre company will present The Ghost Stories of MR. James. This is at atmospheric and macabre original one-man stage show based on some of the Edwardian era’s greatest 
ghost stories. Tickets cost £8 (£6 concessions).
