Joining them on the night will be The Shakes, another Nottinghshire band whose influences include The Beatles, Slade, T-Rex, Oasis and The Rolling Stones, and alternative rockers 2 Hours Late, who have had over 20,000 plays on Spotify so far.

Added to this stellar line-up will be acoustic artist Jaque Seviour, supplying the music before and between bands with an eclectic mix of acoustic covers from the likes of Oasis, Arctic

Monkeys, Mumford & Sons and Eminem.

Everything kicks off at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 each with all proceeds going to Cancer Research and Diabetes UK. For tickets, email, contact or grab one from the Dunn Lite Café in Eastwood. Tickets will be available on the door for the same price, but reserve early to avoid disappointment.
