A Trip to Warrington to see The Vigilantes

Today, 20 of us went to Warrington to see The Vigilantes at the Famous King and Queen Pub.

We hired a coach, leaving Darwen at 11.30 am and stopping for lunch at Kenyon Hall Farm. We had pre ordered the lunch so everything was ready for us when we arrived. After lunch, we boarded the bus again to drive to the Famous King and Queen pub where The Vigilantes were appearing for the afternoon.

The Vigilantes are a 60's group who appeared at the Cavern Club and have a named brick on the wall in the club.. They appeared with many of the well known Liverpool groups of the time and are still entertaining today. We are sharing a concert with them at Darwen Library Theatre on 18th May and this was our first chance to see them performing live.

We spent a very enjoyable couple of hours listening to their music and singing along to some of the songs.

The return coach journey dropped us off in Darwen at approximately 5.30 pm after a very enjoyable day.
