The Bacup Royal Court Theatre will be hosting The Quo Experience on Saturday 7th September and will coincide with both the Bacup 60’s Event and the Rossendale 60’s Festival, which will be held over the weekend of 6th, 7th and 8th September. Status Quo was formed in the 60’s, so this concert will be a great finale to the Bacup 60’s Event organised by The Bacup Now Community Group with support from RBC and will also be happening on Saturday 7th September. It will be running from 10.00am until around 5.00pm, when Bacup will be in the groove with great 60’s music from Pete Sweetmore and lots of live bands, great food and drink and a fab Hippie Market.
