Neville Staple, the star of ska performs at the Platform


Former member of The Specials, FunBoy3 and The Coventry Automatics, Neville Staple and his band will be performing at the Platform this month.

Neville Staple’s thirty-five year career in the music business is well documented. From the early days with The Coventry Automatics, The Specials and FunBoy3 in the late 1970s and 80s, to The Special Beat and various other collaborations during his solo career from the 90s up to the present day.


Following on from the 2009 Specials reunion and his departure from the band in late 2012, he continues to be a forerunner of the ska movement and thrilling audiences with his own excellent band at venues and festival appearances worldwide.

The event takes place on Saturday 13th June at 8.00pm.

Expect to hear some of Neville’s own material, some arrangements of his very favourite old school ska numbers, as well as some classic hits in the mix.

Tickets cost £14 and available from and are available from the box office on 01524 582803 or online at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform-tickets
