I shan’t be throwing my vocal talents into the ring… I know! Why I hear you cry? I’m a drummer. I know my place in the musical scheme of things.

Tickets will cost £20 (plus booking fee) and 100% of the face value will go to Wine Relief, the wine trade fundraising initiative for Comic Relief. They will go on sale in February 2016.
