Auctioning Cliff & Shadows signed guitars at Celebrating the Shadows for Children in Need

Signed by Cliff and The Shadows

Signed by Hank, Bruce, Brian and Cliff at Wembley Arena on 23rd October before their last UK ‘Reunited Tour’ show, this is a fantastic opportunity to own a piece of Cliff and the Shadows memorabilia.

These two guitars will be auctioned during the 8.30pm interval at the Celebrating the Shadows for Children in Need concert on Friday 20th November at Loddon Valley Leisure Centre, Lower Earley, Reading, Berkshire.

If you are interested in bidding from afar, please contact Graham on 0118 375 8900 or email Graham at to register your interest.

Celebrating the Shadows is a Concert to raise funds for Children in Need. Hot on the heels of Cliff and The Shadows’ European tour, four leading Shadows Tribute Bands will stage an evening of nostalgia with a string of all the old hits including Apache, FBI and Wonderful Land. In the late 50s and 60s Shadows music inspired thousands of budding guitarists who all wanted to be Hank Marvin – and here they are still going strong! It’s the country’s secret cult, with hundreds of members in Shadows Clubs across the country.

During the afternoon there will be a Shadows Club players session to backing tracks, starting at 3.15pm. Concert begins at 6.45pm. Ticket price includes entry to afternoon session.
