A ST GEORGE’S Day charity concert with a rock ‘n’ roll theme will have people all shook up later this month.

Let’s Rock ‘n’ Roll with The King, The Killer and The Man In Black is taking place at Huntingdon Hall on Monday, April 23 to raise funds for the charity Help for Heroes.

The patriotic fund-raiser organised by promoter John Banner and his assistant John Reynolds is now in its ninth year but this time the duo have opted for music with a Fifties theme.

The evening will be a tribute to the all time greats of rock ‘n’ roll and country music and will feature three of the best tribute acts in the country.

Rob Dee, from Cardiff and well known for his Billy Fury tribute will be Elvis Presley for the night while Birmingham’s Steve Wicketts will be Jerry Lee Lewis and Clive John, from Malvern, will be Johnny Cash.

Mr Banner said: “We’ve done all the traditional stuff synonymous with St George’s Day like Worcester Male Voice Choir, Malvern Male Voice Choir and the Crown Phoenix Big Band, so this time I’ve managed to obtain the services of three of the best tribute acts in the UK to do something entirely different.”

The chairs at the front of the stage will be removed for dancing on the evening so people can let their hair down.

Tickets for the show, which starts at 7.30pm, cost £15 and can be booked on 01905 611427.
