Ulverston Rotary Club proudly presents The Houghton Weavers!

Come along for a fantastic evening of popular songs, folk music and banter…

Formed in 1975, The Houghton Weavers made their television debut in the BBC’s talent show “We’ll Call You”. So successful were they that, within a couple of months they were given their own show “Sit Thi Deawn” which continued for six series over seven years and had the highest viewing figures for any regional T.V. programme.

As well as their own show the Weavers have appeared on many other national TV programmes for both BBC and ITV including “This Is Your Life” and “The Video Entertainers”.

Six series on Radio 2 led the Weavers to appear with such notable artistes as Cannon & Ball, Ken Dodd, Rick Wakeman, Mike Harding, Billy Connolly, Phil Cool, Jasper Carrott, Norman Wisdom, Mick Miller and Stan Boardman amongst many others.

They have starred in six pantomimes at top theatres in the North West, five of them as top of the bill.

An album deal with EMI found the Weavers recording at the famous Abbey Road Studios and now over 24 albums bear their name, many of which have been re-released and are still major sellers, Their perennial favourite “The Blackpool Belle” was a number 1 hit in Tasmania and a number 3 hit in New Zealand.

Their Fan Club consists of  members ranging in age from three months to 100 years and stretches as far afield as the USA, Canada, Bahrain, Belgium, Australia and Germany.

The Houghton Weavers guarantee a wonderful evening of entertainment which is suitable for all the family. Their experience – together with their style and professionalism – ensures that, as their motto says, they always `Keep Folk Smiling`.
