Two Days To Go Until Major Charity Music Event In Shrewsbury

There are just two days to go before one of the biggest charity music events to ever take place in Shrewsbury.

Tickets for Guitars For Little Stars, which takes place at The Buttermarket on Friday 6th December 2013, have been selling fast and cost just £5 in advance.

Eight of Shropshire’s best known bands will take to the stage to help raise money for the NSPCC and Help Our Little Star - a fund set up in support of Theo Flint, a 16-year-old from Bayston Hill who is fighting brain cancer.

The brainchild of Shropshire musicians Paul Webb and Danny Parker, Guitars For Little Stars was also a way to both give something back to the town for its support.

“Danny and I were talking during one of the acoustic nights we hold in Shrewsbury and how great it would be to hold a proper band night featuring local musicians,” said Mr Webb.

“Both of us know Theo and his mum and also have children ourselves so the idea then evolved into a great way to raise money for both him and the NSPCC.

“All of the bands offered their support free of charge, as did The Buttermarket, so every penny we raise from ticket sales and the prize draw on the night will go to the two charities.

“We have had incredible support and tickets have been selling really well, so if you want to get in for the bargain advance price of just £5, get yours now.”

Bands performing on the night are The Taste, Rolo Benz, Thom and Chrisbee, Someone Else, The Rainbreakers, Glasshouse and Robbie Jones and Amy Pugh.

Tickets cost £5 in advance or £8 on the door. They are available from The Peach Tree, Henry Tudor House, Music Bros, Porterhouse, SMC, Fusion, Severn Ink, The Bellstone and The Rock and Fountain.

Doors open at 7.30pm.
