OUTRAGEOUS antics will be the order of the day when four musicians take to the stage next week.

The London Philharmonic Skiffle Orchestra will be performing at the British Schools Museum in Hitchin next Friday, June 29. Taking place in the Monitorial Schoolroom at the museum in Queen Street, the orchestra will be playing a variety of instruments from the more traditional violin, double bass and mandolin, through to the slightly quirky washboard and saw to a duck, rubber chicken and frog.

Added to the fast-paced musical mix will be an eclectic dress code and some wacky humour to boot.

Speaking about the group’s visit to Cornwall in November 2011, one reviewer said: “Such an amazing show. We shall all remember your outrageous antics on stage, silly costumes, your musical versatility and your ability to read the audience. A night of fun, frivolity, energy and hilarity together with amazing musical dexterity. Come back to Cornwall soon please.”

Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Tickets cost �8 with proceeds in aid of the museum. To book call 01462 420144.
