CC Smugglers headline Music for Lulu charity concert at the Ent Shed this Friday


This Friday 15 March, the Ent Shed will host a Music for Lulu fund-raising event for the Lulu’s Fight Against Neuroblastoma campaign.

Richie, Sam and Ryan from festival favourites, the CC Smugglers will now be making a special guest appearance alongside Los the Plot, DJ Ant & Atari Youth Club.

All proceeds from the evening will go towards the £162,000 target that five year old Lulu’s parents need to raise to access life-saving cancer treatment in New York.

“Fighting cancer is unimaginably hard,” said CC Smugglers’ lead singer, Richie Prynne. “Like most people, I’ve lost people in my life to it, but for a five year old and her family have to deal with that sort of tragedy is absolutely heartbreaking.

“Childhood innocence is one of the most precious things in the world, and if I can do anything to help, then I will.”

Tickets are £8 and are selling fast. Get one while you can from The Ent Shed or Fays at Riverside.

Doors open at 7.30pm and there will be a raffle and homemade Indian snacks on the evening.
