Popular music extravaganza “Hey Clitheroe” will be back once again in March - with Jeramiah Ferrari gearing up to make it second time lucky for local music fans.
The Manchester-based headline act were due to appear last year, but had to do a last minute U-turn when the lead singer fell ill on the eve of the show.
However, the reggae band wanted to make up for it by appearing at the 2018 fundraiser - which will be held at The Grand, York Street, on Saturday, March 10th.
For a third successive year, Hey Clitheroe will be raising cash for Alder Hey Hospital - a health facility which has brought hope and peace of mind to many Ribble Valley children and their families.
More than £12,500 has been raised over the last two years - and Jeramiah Ferrari are thrilled to finally be part of the Hey Clitheroe story.
Spokesman for the successful event, Derek Russell, said: “The musical aim of Hey Clitheroe continues to be on presenting local acts, especially those who are based in and around Clitheroe and the Ribble Valley.
“Additionally, we want to ensure each event includes a diversity of musical styles.
“To date we have not discovered any local acts which specialise in ‘reggae’ styled music.”
Derek added: “We are delighted to be putting Hey Clitheroe on for a third year running and we are confident that once again the evening will be a great value-for-money event of fun, diversity and highly quality non-stop music. With two more acts as well as Jeramiah Ferrrari, we are sure that our line up will appeal to music lovers of all ages and tastes.”
