MUSIC fans had a night to remember with the rock group Feeder coming to town and performing live in Whitchurch at a sold out gig.

The South Wales rockers performed in Percy's Cafe Bar, The Star Hotel, Watergate on Saturday, March 12, in a gig that was described by bosses at the bar as the biggest band to hit Whitchurch since the Beatles played in 1963.

Feeder had initially planned to perform in Whitchurch on January 15 but postpone the tour until March amid rising Covid cases.

And about 100 people crammed into the popular venue to watch the band, known for hits such as Buck Rogers, blow the Covid cobwebs away.

Percy's Cafe Bar owner Mark Steptoe Daws said it had been a memorable occasion for both the venue and for Whitchurch.

Owner, Mark Steptoe Daws said: "It was an amazing night here at Percy's Cafe Bar with Feeder, the biggest band to play in the town in 50 years.
