Ukrainian Relief Gig at The Hive

May the Twenty Seventh is the date and the venue is The Hive in Shrewsbury.

For many years there has been great music played in the Pubs and Clubs and Shrewsbury. Great singers, guitarists and poets. Shrewsbury people may only see them once or twice and sometimes never again. However, it is worth saying the standard of music played is top level and most players in the pubs and clubs of Shrewsbury, Blues, Folk and Americano can be heard almost every night throughout Shrewsbury Town. The Loggerheads and The Crown and The Seven Stars have all entertained for decades.

Now there is a chance to see the cream of these players playing for The Ukraine. In a fund raising event at The Hive, the evening promises to be the best players that Shrewsbury has to offer.

With an eclectic evening of live music and an auction to boot, this is a serious attempt to help Ukraine and add to the relief fund. Three hours of great music promises to make for a fantastic night out.

Tickets are now on sale and cost £12:00. All profit, the proceeds of collecting buckets and auction money will all go to the Ukrainian relief. Book early as there are limited tickets.

For tickets call the Hive on 01743234970 or contact [email protected] for further information.

Maybe you might play yourself and feel you could add to the growing lists of performers if so email [email protected]

This is a chance to do a little something for the poor beleaguered people of the Ukraine. Come along and support. Once again a reminder. If you want to be a part contact the above email address and there may be scope for you to perform too. Poets also welcome.

The organisers wish to make as much money as possible to help try and make a difference during this terrible conflict.
