A POPULAR band will be making a welcome return to an arts centre to provide the live music for a Christmas party.
The Leek-based funk, soul and disco band of Funk Station will be taking their 70s and 80s party set to the Foxlowe Arts Centre on Friday (December 21).
Funk Station is a seven-piece live band that specialises in 70's and 80's funk, soul and disco.
Band member Paul Hill said: "This Friday will be our first public gig in Leek since the Leek Arts Festival gig at The Foxlowe in June which worked out really well.
"For this gig we have got a new, larger brass section and we will be playing lengthy sets so expect plenty of dancing.
"Also the gig will be taking place also in the newly refurbished function room at the Foxlowe Arts Centre, so there's plenty of space for dancing too."
The Christmas Party on Friday will start at 8pm and Funk Station will be supported by Dub Partisans.
Tickets are priced at £12.50 (£10 for pledger's and volunteers of the Foxlowe) to include Christmas party buffet.
