Last chance for tickets to this weekend's 'Mayor-Fest' at Northampton bar
A charity music festival organised by the mayor of Northampton will kick off in a Northampton bar this weekend.
Councillor Gareth Eales is launching his 'Mayor-Fest' this weekend at The Picturedrome, in Kettering Road, taking place on January 26, 27and 28. All profits from the festival will go to the Alfie Bear's Journey charity.
The line-up includes some of Northampton's own local bands, as well as headline tribute acts, including: The Smyths, The Killerz and The Oasis Experience, Donnybrook Fair, The 2 Tones, Kickstart, King's Gambit and more.
Mayor Gareth Eales said: "We've tried to go for a blend of some top quality tribute acts, along with some really good local talent and I think we've done that. These acts are absolutely top class.
"It's going to be a great weekend and I'm sure we'll raise a good amount of money for the charity at the same time, which is what it's all about.
"We've already had people from places as far away as Scotland confirmed they are going. We expect to sell out, I would encourage people to get their tickets now or risk being disappointed."
Tickets are on sale at the Mayor-Fest website.
The full Mayor-Fest line-up is:
FRIDAY 26th Jan - 19:00 to Late
SATURDAY 27th Jan - 19:00 to Late
