Charity rock gig returns to Grand Pier

PUBLISHED: 07:00 24 January 2013




A CHARITY rock extravaganza will once again take over Weston’s Grand Pier in the name of a good cause.

Daz’s Rock 4 Charity will return to the landmark attraction on February 1 for another night of rocking fundraising fun.

This year’s event will raise money for the Avon Riding Centre in Henbury, which provides tuition and therapy for adults and children with a wide range of disabilities.

This is West Country musician Daz Sims’ 10th charity gig – he has been holding them since 2007 and more than £72,000 for various organisations has been raised in that time.

Last year’s event at the pier raised more than £6,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust South West.

The acts appearing at this year’s event include up-and-coming town rockers, and current Priory School students, Interlude, who will open the show.

Rock and pop trio Silver Train, covers collective Chuff, indie-popsters The Vacations, and Unison will also perform.

Daz And Friends are also on the bill, alongside solo performers such as Teresa Alexander, Jake Sims, Jake Ryall, Mitch Sanders-Healy, Loki Saunders, Max Brain, Andrea Barber, Lee Ross and Stacey Lou Hunt.

Tickets for the event are priced £10, and can be purchased from the pier’s retail shop, online at or from Daz at 07976 629132.

Doors will open at 6.30pm with the concert starting at 7.30pm.
