Memorial in honour of Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham
Updated 1:29pm Wednesday 23rd July 2014 in News
A FUNDRAISING gig organised to help raise cash for a memorial in honour of Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham will be taking place next week.
The show, at St Stephen's Church, will feature the late drummer's sister singer/songwriter Deborah Bonham, who will be playing a special acoustic set.
It has been set up by members of the John Bonham Memorial Fund, whose aim is to raise an initial £50,000 for the design and installation of a fitting permanent memorial in Redditch town centre, the birthplace of the legendary drummer.
The preferred location for the memorial is on the Church Green, behind St Stephen's church, next to the Bandstand and Bartleet Fountain, on land owned by Redditch Borough Council.
Any additional monies raised will be used to cover future maintenance costs.
The show is on Saturday, August 2 at St Stephen's Church.
Tickets are £10 in advance or £12 on the door with all proceeds going toward the statue of the great drummer.
