ONE of the most entertaining groups to come out of the sixties and seventies, the Barron Knights, are reliving the music of their golden era at The Radlett Centre on Saturday night.

They are appearing as part of their 50th anniversary tour and will be demonstrating the musicianship, harmonies and humour which makes their peers call them The Guv’nors.

With over 300 shows at the London Palladium and a performance at Buckingham Palace to their name, the Barron Knights inspired Bill Wyman to buy a guitar back in 1961 and Elton John was their session pianist on some of their records recorded at Abbey Road.

The band come on stage at 7.30pm and tickets are £17 with concessions £16, available from the box office on 01923 859291 or go to

Arthur Miller’s classic play The Crucible is being performed at The Radlett Centre next Wednesday, October 13.

The gripping tale of one of humanity’s darkest days, The Crucible shows the grim underbelly of religion and early civilised society and the violent consequences of cowardice and jealousy.

Set in the remote puritan village of Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692, the play depicts the infamous witch hunt that turned the entire community against itself.

Black Ram Theatre Company, one of East Anglia’s leading touring theatre companies, combines the text with film and computer animation with actors onstage interacting with those onscreen.

The performance starts at 8pm and tickets are £12 with concessions £10.
