We are very grateful to Nik Kershaw for agreeing to do this show for us as it he is interrupting his solo UK tour to accommodate us. Nik Kershaw has enjoyed massive sucess over the years with many hit records and has continually toured the world as a result. He was also part of the biggest gig ever staged playing four songs at the original Live Aid concert in 1985. We are very excited to have Nik and his band perform for us and would like to thank John, Jules and Matt Glover for helping us make this happen.
The support acts and acoustic acts are all local to the Telford area and again we are delighted to be having them take part. Each act brings something different to the stage and we are sure there will be something for everyones music tastes! We hope our event showcases there fantastic talent and brings them to the notice of a wider audience.
The evening is being hosted by Paul Shuttleworth on the main stage and Rich Pilgrim on the acoustic stage.They will keep the crowds entertained between acts and help us get the information out to the crowd regarding the charitys ongoing work. Thankyou guys.
The whole evening is being sponsored by Rollinson Smith Insurance brokers who have very kindly backed us all the way. They have a close association with Bens family and have been a fantastic support from day one of his illness. We are very grateful for the backing and the help also in the planning stage.
Lastly we are again putting this all on again at Oakengates Theatre who like last year have been brilliant with us. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Heather, Gary and Debs and we have been made to feel very welcome at this great venue.
It promises to be a great night again and hopefully if people can spread the word we may even sell out this time! Tell friends, tell family, tel lworkmates and we'll see you all on 09.10.17 :-)
