We are holding our second OPEN MIKE NIGHT at ALPINE, West Street on SUNDAY 30th AUGUST in memory of our much loved and sorely missed, legend of a friend, MIKE WILLIAMS!

After the huge success of last year’s event, we are back to do it all again! Same place, same format, different charity. This year we are doing it for the fantastic Anthony Nolan who specialise specifically in finding cures for blood cancers, such as Leukemia.

Trust me when I say, you will not want to be anywhere else on this day, but if you can’t be there and wish to donate, then please do so here.

This time the beneficiary will be The Anthony Nolan Trust.

As well as he musical extravaganza, people are being invited to take and send their own “Smikies” – which event organiser Hayley Murray says has been inspired by Mike and “his wonderful smile.”

Hayley said: “Mike’s mum came up with the idea because every time she thinks about Mike, she thinks about his smile.

“And Mike was known for his selfies, so we are getting people to take their own Smikies and make a donation as they do so.

“We raised over £200 in the first 24 hours of us starting this.”

Every penny is massively appreciated so dig deep, you can donate



Entry to the event is a minimum donation of £5 on the door. for more information, visit the Facebook event, Open Mike Night .
