Oblong Resource Centre is holding an all day music event at The Primrose Pub on Meanwood Road on Saturday 17th May to raise funds for the Forget-Me-Not Trust.
This unique charity focuses on relieving the awful stress of terminal illness in the young by giving them a chance to enjoy themselves. As Edwina Warrington, founder trustee with the Morley based charity says: "all money raised for The Forget-Me-Not Trust goes to the children. The sole purpose is to provide sick children with treats and morale boosters."
With some of the cream of local talent on display, it is anticipated to bring in a packed audience, with the following bands all confirmed to give their support to the event:
Babaganoush, 10,000 Things, Codex, The Soundwaves, Deepwater, Invention of Hands and Randomiser with more acts still to be confirmed.
A number of acoustic performers will be playing on the day and who regularly perform at the popular weekly open-mic sessions at The Primrose.
Mike Jolly from Oblong said: "it's fantastic that so many bands have been so enthusiastic about playing at this event and providing their services for free; I'm sure it will be a great day." Oblong supports local not-for-profit projects by providing office services, training and advice.
The all-day event takes place at The Primrose Pub, Meanwood Road, Leeds 7 (tel: 262-1368) and entry is £3.00 on the day. Doors open at 1.00pm and it finishes at midnight.
