Free for all in aid of charity

A TRIBUTE night to 1970s rockers Free will be held next month to raise money for charity.

The Annual Free Convention will take place at Tynemouth’s Park Hotel from 7pm on October 8 in aid of the Northern Brainwave Appeal, which raises money fro CT scanners in hospitals.

Four bands will play during the night – Heartbreaker, Free Spirit, Heavyload and Freeway – and there will be an auction of signed memorabilia, mostly donated by Free frontman Paul Rodgers.

Tickets are £10 in advance from the Park Hotel or £15 on the door on the night.

Tickets can also be purchased by sending a SAE to Bill Flynn, 4 Mile End Close, Foulridge, Colne, Lancashire, BB8 7LD.
