VISITORS had a rocking good time when they flocked to the Stevenage Juke Box Party on Saturday.
Toes were tapping and heads were bobbing as hits spanning 60 years were belted out in the town centre by the Funky Monks and Arizona.
Also there to entertain the crowds was Three Degrees member Sheila Ferguson who is one of the stars of the Dick Whittington panto at the Gordon Craig Theatre this year.
The party formed part of the 60th birthday celebrations organised by the Stevenage Town Centre Management Company and included free face painting, balloons and diamond anniversary T-shirts.

Contestants clamoured to take part in the music trivia games put together by Hertbeat fm in a bid to win some fabulous prizes, all of which were donated by town centre businesses.
The biggest prize of all went to Jayne Jarvis from Stevenage, who was the lucky winner of a week's holiday in Cyprus. Jayne was presented with her prize by Suzanne Arnold from Travelcare and Tracey Parry, Stevenage town centre manager.

"The event was a great success," said Tracey,
"We had lots of positive feedback from the public and it was great to see so many people enjoying the live music. Even the weather stayed fine for us."
There'll be no resting on their laurels for the town centre team though - they are already busy organising this year's Christmas Lights switch-on event, which will be held on Thursday, November 23.
