THE mid-60s music scene was dominated by British Groups, three of which became household names – The Beatles,The Rolling Stones, and… Herman’s Hermits.

From their beginning in Manchester in 1964, the band has chalked up more thanr 23 top 20 single records, 10 hit albums, three major movies and countless television shows and concert tours all over the world – up to date they have total record sales of more than 75 million.

Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group has never stopped.

Original member, Barry (The Bean) Whitwam, has guided the group from strength to strength into one of the hardest working bands in the business – they still average more then 200 one night stands per year – and reckon they maintain their stamina by having an amazing sense of humour.

Their touring schedule takes them to Germany, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, the Scandinavian countries, Japan, USA , Canada, Australia and new Zealand on a regular basis and still find time to perform in their home country, packing in the audiences at every venue and delighting them with their solid musicianship, vocal ability and dynamic stage presence.

The band will be appearing at Redditch's Palace Theatre in Redditch this Friday, June 6.

The 50th Anniversary concert commences at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the box office on 01527 65203 or online at
