Sarah said: “Tracey is a trustee of the Let’s Play project and after a recent house gig at my house she asked if I would help put a line up together for a fundraising acoustic night.

“After a lot of looking at venues, costs and formats we came across Rock The Atic which a new, really cool venue on Butchers Row.

“They don’t open on a Wednesday and Ryan Mold, the owner, was happy to open for us on that night and we could have exclusive use of the venue.

“I then got a really special line of together of acoustic musicians and we are organising a raffle too.”

The music night will be helping some of the most vulnerable youngsters in the local area.
