Two talented musicians are reuniting for a fundraising gig in aid of Weston Hospicecare.
The Trainspotters are reforming for one night only to put on a fundraising gig at The Royal Hotel, in South Parade, on Friday at 8pm.
The band was created by George Smith and Jon Hooper in the 1970s and was a huge hit with music fans in Weston-super-Mare.
The group went on to do a variety of TV and live radio recordings at the famous BBC Maida Vale studios until the band’s demise in the late 1970s.
Hooper now fronts local band The Jury and George is a full-time musician in France.
