Musician and entrepreneur Bip Wetherell will be bringing his Strictly Sixties show to The Core theatre, Corby, on Friday, September 20, for the third year running.

With special guests The Rockin’ Berries, the evening of classic pop songs from the 1960s is being held in aid of the cancer charity Prostaid.

Bip and his band The Telstars will open the show before Birmingham beat legends The Rockin’ Berries take the stage.

Inspired by Chuck Berry, the group rode the wave of the early-sixties British beat boom, with hits including He’s In Town, What In The World’s Come Over You and Poor Man’s Son. Featuring original band members Geoff Turton and Chuck Botfield, the current line-up is famed for their superb harmonies and musicianship.

After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men in the UK, Mr Wetherell published his cancer diaries in the Northamptonshire Telegraph in 2008.

Since then he has raised thousands of pounds for charity and was nominated for a Pride in Northamptonshire award, all while battling the disease.

Tickets for the Strictly Sixties show, which starts at 7.30pm, are £17.50 and £15.50 for concessions.

They can be booked by calling the ticket office on 01536 470470 or online at
