A group who has been profiled by this Web site is playing Queen's Theatre, Barnstaple, on Thursday, September 16.

The Barron Knights once employed Elton as a session pianist. They have also supported the Beatles and Rolling Stones on tour.

The fellows are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.





Formed in 1960 as a straight vocal harmony group, The Knights went on to enjoy a series of top ten hits with comedy records and performing for royalty at Buckingham Palace.

Tickets for the Queens's Theatre appearance cost £15.50 (concession: £14.50).

The box office number is 01271 324242, and the gig kicks off at 7:45 p.m.
