Default Exciting stuff at the Hare and Hounds!

UB40 to be honoured with Heritage Award – Tuesday 4th October

Well as most of you are already aware from the links that have recently been put on the bb, the band are to be honoured with a PRS for Music Heritage Award. The award recognises unusual performance birthplaces of famous bands and artists, and UB40 are the eighth band to receive this prestigious plaque. The plaque will be erected at the Hare and Hounds pub in Kings Heath where the band performed their first gig back in 1979 (and where many of you attended the anniversary gig last year), and the event will take place this Tuesday (4th October).

Now here’s the really exciting bit. Following the unveiling of the plaque at 11.30am, the band will then be performing a short acoustic set of songs. Obviously we want to have as many loonies there as possible to join in the party, so the venue will be letting 70 fans in on a first come first served basis to watch the set. The doors will open at around 12:30, and we would urge you to get in the queue early to avoid disappointment.

In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to get yourself on the guest-list, which will include 10 lucky loonies. Those 10 will be given the chance to attend a pre-set reception at 11:30, as well as get access to the acoustic set without having to queue. To be in with a chance of being The One in 10, you will need to register your interest by midnight on Saturday 1st October, by pming me your name and contact number. Winners will be drawn out of a champagne bucket by Robin at random and will be notified by me.

So good luck all and don’t forget to get your entries in on time.
We hope to see as many of you loonies there as possible.

Big Love
Luci Lockit

Great news, good luck to everyone lucky enough to be able to attend.

Too soon for me sadly to make arrangements, but hope you are all lucky enough.

So proud of our boys and this achievement x
