A NIGHT at the movies was enjoyed at the Victoria Halls.

Eagley Band and its musical director took the stage to perform the music of some of the best movie soundtrack of all time in their evening of Movies, Musicals and Miscellany.

Mr Wormald said: " Buoyed by the afternoon win by England’s footballers in the quarter-finals of the World Cup, there was a definite added buzz in the large audience on Saturday evening and once again the band wowed everyone who attended with performances of popular film music including Mission Impossible, The Incredibles, Jaws, Batman, Indiana Jones, The Greatest Showman, James Bond and extended highlights from Les Miserables.

The evening was one of the hottest concerts many of the band members had ever given. So much so that for the joint items in the second half, together with Smithills Community Band and Choir, band jackets were removed and bottles of water taken on to the stage.

"Everyone left the hall after a superb day both at the World Cup and the concert!"
