Battle Of The Bands!

31 Mar


A charity event has been organised in Sheffield to help raise money for families who have children with cancer.

‘Battle of the Bands’ will take place in Walkabout, Carver Street, off West Street, on April 4th. Local Sheffield bands- Scrim, Kiziah and the Kings and Section 60- will each play a 30minute set and the audience will decide who the best band is. A DJ will then play out the rest of the night.

The theme of the night is popstars, so guests are invited to come as their favourite singer and the best dressed will win a trophy and a prize. Everyone who buys a ticket will automatically be entered into a raffle with prizes such as:

•La Tasca – Meal for 2 with a bottle of wine
•Pizza Express Hamper
•Taylor and Taylor – 2 cut and finishes up for grabs
•2 x Lyceum Theatre Tickets
•TGI Friday – £30 voucher
•Holly Bowling vouchers
Mercure Spa – 2x day passes
•Pure gym – 10 free PT sessions
– 5 goody bags
•Nando’s Voucher
•Hocky family ticket to a season game

All proceeds from the night go to Amy’s Retreat, a Sheffield based charity set up by Joanne and Stephen Hall after their daughter, Amy, died of cancer aged five. The charity gives families with children who suffer who cancer, the chance to go away and spend time together as a family.

Event co-ordinator Frances Child said: “The foundation is completely selfless, and deserves all the exposure it can get. There has been great cooperation from the community and local businesses in providing prizes and giving their support, I’m glad that I am able to be a part of helping this cause.”

Tickets can be purchased now or on the night at Walkabout for £5, all proceeds will be going to charity.
