SCOTTISH rock band Marmalade are set to be joined by former Radio 1 DJ David Diddy Hamilton for a charity retro night at Highcliffe Sports and Social Club on Friday 29th March.

After becoming the first Scottish act to top the UK charts on New Year's Day in 1969, Marmalade went on to have top 10 hits well into the 1970s.

Their debut number one Ob-la-di Ob-la-da lead to headlining slots on Top Of The Pops marking the climax of a hard-won personal victory for Dean Ford and the Gaylords, who changed their name to Marmalade in the mid-1960’s.

After a string of hits in the early 1970’s Falling Apart At The Seams hit the charts across the globe in 1976’s, following the recruitment of Sandy Newman as a singer and guitarist.

Tickets to the Marmalade retro night are £25 each but we’ve teamed up with the organisers Quiz Britain Productions to give one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets by answering the question in this week’s leisure competition.

Question: What was the name of Marmalade’s original lead singer?

A. Sandy Newman B. William Junior Campbell C. Dean Ford
