This coming weekend, there is a very special event taking place at The Sugarmill. 'Sunday for Sam' is a memorial concert for Sam Lyth.
Sam was a fantastic boy with an infectious smile and zest for life, he had just turned 15 before he lost his brave battle with Cancer.
Often seen at punk, indie and metal gigs at The Mill, Sam was a well known face always wanting to chat about music and his other big passion, motorbikes. Not only did Sam get the chance to meet many musicians at gigs, he also received a personal 'get well soon' message from Valentino Rossi, and was one of the few people who knew the true identity of 'The Stig' after meeting him too.
Sunday 21st June will give many of the local bands that Sam liked a chance to play in his memory. All proceeds from the night will be going to the 'Donna Louise Trust'.
Tickets are available (£4.00 in advance or £5 on the door), from all performers, and Music Mania (who have kindly waived their booking fee). Many Thanks to all bands, performers, for performing on the night, and to Sugarmill Staff and Broken Branch records who are all donating their wages to the funds.
