To celebrate the life of Ben Sambrook who sadly passed away with a brain tumour at nearly 15 years of age. He was only 7 years old when he was first diagnosed and if Ben were here today he would be celebrating his 18th birthday this year with all of his beloved friends and family. So, to mark this special year ‘BENefit GIG’ have once again pulled out the stops on behalf of Ben, his mates and family to host this year’s local event at: Killock Hall, Longwood Lane, Aldridge, Walsall WS5 3AT on Friday 24th March 2017, doors will open at 7pm.
Live music and a disco with a licensed bar for the ones that are old enough, tombola and hopefully some of our sweetie prizes to be won.
Ben and his family expressed a wish for this event to continue each year after Ben had passed away, hoping this would encourage and give a chance to local musicians, fellow students, fans and the next generations a chance to experience, perform and work in a live professional environment that they could attend close to their homes.
