~If you were a member of an established orchestra you would be expected to play each note without fault and have a sense of seriousness about the nature of the music and the audience you would be performing to.

For some of us this can present problems. We may be naturally musical but lack the ability to follow a strict conformist approach. We would therefore prefer a musical ensemble that still played music but encouraged a more light hearted approach to it.

Preston Scratch Band is provided for those who wish to play popular songs in a welcoming and accessible group where the emphasis is on having a good time rather than strictly getting all the notes right.

Organisers will provide books giving the lyrics, melodies and chords and welcome musicians of all levels of ability.

The group meets on the first and third Saturday of each month from September - May. The next session is this Saturday 18th January, meeting in UCLAN’S Media Factory, Room ME226, Preston Campus for a two hour duration - 11am -1pm.

This Saturday the PSB will going through the following three classic songs:-

  1. Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door
  2. Run
  3. Royals

Please note:- Children must be accompanied throughout by a responsible adult. No booking is required and entrance is free but donations are requested.

Bring your instrument, bring your voice, or use the provided percussion instruments. Enjoy the fun and laughter with this unique collective group:-
