  1. Harrogate Vinyl Sessions meets once a month to play a famous LP on vintage Hi Fi equipment, with an accompanying talk and slideshow about the record and artist. This month local record collector Ian Smith presents Motown Legends to celebrate its 60th birthday. 16 Motown releases played on the original vinyl issue featuring all the Motown icons; a short talk about the history of the label('s), the artists and the records plus a comprehensive historical slide show. Entry is free but the organisers welcome a £5 donation to the charity Friends of Harrogate Hospital. All proceeds go to the Harrogate Hospital Neonatal 3way scanner appeal fund. There will also be a raffle on the night. No dancing (only at the back!) but it should be an enjoyable and informative night. Advance booking is recomended - tickets can be ordered from www.vinylsesions.org
