FIFTY years to the week since Leapy Lee made the number two spot with Little Arrows, he plays a cabaret show at The Red Lion country inn at Boroughbridge Road, Upper Poppleton, York, tonight at 7.30pm.

"Leapy is still very much in demand and living in Spain these days, so it was pure luck on booking this one, through a friend of a friend," says Red Lion landlord Mark Lee.

"Ironically, Little Arrows was the very first record I bought and now, all these years later, he is playing at my place!"

Tickets are still available for tonight's event, combining a two-course meal and Leapy Lee's cabaret. On the menu will be traditional turkey roast with all the trimmings or salmon en croute with sautéed potatoes and veg or vegetable and goat's cheese tartlet with potatoes and veg, followed by a choice of sherry trifle, sticky toffee pudding or chocolate brownie.

Tickets are on sale on 01904 781141 or at the
