"Mod bikes called to music event at Tamworth's Three Tuns" says The Herald

MODS in the Tamworth area are being called on to join together for a one-day musical event this month – and it's all in the name of charity.

March of the Mods, which will see a whole host of music acts take to the stage live, is being held at the Three Tuns pub on Sunday, March 30.

DJs and a variety of bands are coming together to raise the roof at the Fazeley pub – as well as plenty of cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

"This is a nationwide charity money-raising event held in 30 towns and cities throughout the country and Tamworth has been allocated the final event of the month," said joint-organiser Chris Louca, from Leyfields.

"Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in March groups and DJs give up their time to help raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust by holding gigs throughout the country."

Along with fellow organiser, Coton Green resident Steve Swift, Chris is hoping to raise as much money as possible from the event, which will run from 1pm to midnight.

Chris said they are were hoping that countless people would turn up on scooters, in traditional mod style.

As well as 15 musical acts performing live, food will be served all day.

"I DJed at this event in Tamworth last year and it was brilliant, so when the organiser said they didn't want to do it again, we stepped up," said Chris. "Everything is coming together, we have got all the acts sorted and will even have a stall on the day selling CDs and other bits to help raise more money."

The event will take place in the pub's private function gig and the barn in the rear forecourt by the canal.

A raffle will also feature, with one of the prizes up for grabs being a two-man ocean kayak donated by Ocean Kayaks.

Tickets will be sold on the door and are priced at £5.
