A WESTON pub is putting on an afternoon of live music and entertainment to raise money for charity.

The Super Mare Hungry Horse in Somerset Avenue is set to raise much-needed funds for Help For Heroes on August 8 with its annual Party In The Car Park.

Seven bands will perform during the all-day open air concert, including two of the country’s top tribute bands Oas-is and The Stereoironics.

Local band Re-Offender have named this event as their last-ever public performance before they hang up their guitars at the end of a 10-year career entertaining thousands of music fans around the South West. The line-up also features The Exchequers, The Proof, Alannah Jackson and Start.

The event starts at 1.30pm, with two outside bars, food stalls and 
a bouncy castle, and closes at 11pm.

The day will be hosted by the pub’s assistant manager Leroy Brown who is a former soldier and part-time entertainer.

Super Mare manager Steve Hughes said: “Our customers have a great tradition of raising money for charity and our first event last year was a massive success and has turned into our own mini-festival, and this year we are hoping to raise £2,000 for Help For Heroes.

“Anyone wishing to support 
the event is welcome to come along from 1.30pm and join in the fun.”

A £1 entry donation to the charity is suggested.
