Lunch and love in Leyland – with a legend no less!

Leyland Band and the legendary Richard Evans bring lunch, love and laughter to the table for a prize-winning weekend…

The winners of Leyland Band’s ‘Lunch with a legend’ competition recently took up their prize over the St. Valentine’s weekend.

Andrew and Denise Roberts, whose two sons play with Jackfield Elcock Reisen Band in Telford, enjoyed a lovely weekend’s stay at the local 4-star ‘Best Western’ hotel, aided by chauffeur driven transport to the Whittle’s Farm restaurant, in nearby Tarleton, to meet up with the legend that is Richard Evans.

The couple said that they thoroughly enjoyed meeting with Richard and sharing his many anecdotes while enjoying a first class meal in between the laughter!

The stay was rounded off by a trip to the band’s annual ‘Romance in Brass’ concert at Chorley Town Hall.
