MERSEYSIDE legends The Christians played to a sell out crowd at Winsford's new live music venue.

The big concert hall at community owned The Hive has hosted a feast of international musicians and tribute acts since it opened a few months ago.

Sam Lyon, events and marketing supervisor of The Hive Live Ltd, said: "The Christians was a real coup for the Hive in its mission to attract big name acts to the area so residents don’t always have to leave town for great entertainment.

"They were a huge success. It was full and the band were superb, made a lot of old fans extremely happy."

The band performed many of their best known songs including Ideal World, the highest placing single from their million selling debut album in 1987.

More big names will be appearing in the coming months.

Xander and The Peace Pirates perform on December 3 and China Crisis will be on stage on December 4.

Oasis Supernova has been booked for a show on March 12, next year.

Chris Carr and his six-piece band have performed all over the world.

A full string section played live promises to create the ultimate sound and experience.

Tickets for this show are £10 but super early bird tickets are now available for half price at £5.
