FLIXTON Band is holding an open rehearsal on Thursday, February 21, at 8 p,m.

The event, to be held at the John Alker Club, Flixton Road, will, according to the organisers, be a laid-back affair.

The band will show off the pieces it will play when it represents Trafford and Greater Manchester at the North West Regional Championships to be held in Blackpool at the end of February.

A spokesman for the band said: “We love sharing our musical endeavours with the community and so we’re opening up this rehearsal to the public.

“Whether you’re an old friend of the band or have never heard us play before, you’re welcome to join us for this free evening.

“The bar will be open so that you can enjoy a drink to go with the music.”
