VETERANS of the swinging sixties will gather on Friday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Club Fiesta, in Stockton.

The former nightclub, in Norton Road, played host to string of stars.

To commemorate the anniversary, the Billingham Arms Hotel, in Billingham, will feature music from the era. Keith Lipthorpe, founder and owner of Club Fiesta, will attend.

A raffle raising funds for local charities will be organised at the event, with money going towards the Butterwick Hospice.

Tickets are £6 in advance and are available from the Billingham Arms or the Golden Eagle, Thornaby.
