A CONCERT in memory of Buddy Holly is being staged at Weston's Playhouse theatre on Thursday (Oct 5).The exceptionally influential singer and songwriter died aged 22 in a plane crash on February 3, 1959, cutting short what promised to be a hugely successful career.

They have played at theatres, open-air festivals, sporting testimonials and fund-raising events for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the British Olympic Appeal, which raised money to send the Great Britain team to the Sydney games.Tickets, priced £8-13, are available from the box office on 01934 645544.
