There’s only just over a week to go before the Gliderdrome has a return visit from one of the most popular acts to appear there.

Jimmy James and the Vagabonds will be appearing next Friday (1 November).

It was nine years since Jimmy last appeared but he returns with a reputation gained from visits over the years from when the Starlight Room first opened in 1964 and had chart hits with I’ll Go Where The Music Takes Me and Now Is The Time.

He played at the Marquee Club in London many times in the early Sixties and made his first appearance at Boston in July 1966 as a support band; two months later he was back as top of the bill and visited the venue no fewer than six times in 1967. Compère and DJ will again be Steve Greenhough

Tickets priced £15 are available from the Gliderdrome (at bingo sessions), Chris Cook Print Shop in Main Ridge, and Burgess Thompson & Richardson in High Street. They will also be available on the door on the night priced £18.

Following on from the Jimmy James dance, the next one will be the Christmas Party on Thursday, December 19, featuring visits from three who have visited in the past year: Soul Solution, Just4Kicks and a quick return for Liam Maddison. Tickets for this will be £12 or £15 on the door; they will be available as above.
