An evening of music and song - Mayfied Sports Centre, Castleton.

On Saturday 3 October, several Rochdale Folk musicians will gather at Mayfield Sports Centre, Castleton for an evening of music & song. The event is one of over 200 nationwide gigs under a 'We Shall Overcome banner, to show solidarity with people and organizations affected by the Austerity cuts and to raise donations for Rochdale Food-Bank. Organizers are local musicians Paul Cunningham & Gerry O'Gorman (see pic). 

Rochdale, along with other North West towns, has been hit by cuts to jobs & services, wages & living standards, resulting in increased financial struggles for many families. The aim of theWSO gig is for musicians to show opposition to the cuts and help people at the sharp end of poverty in the town. It's a free gig but we'd really appreciate it if people brought food items & donations for the food-bank, to the gig, which will be collected on the night.
