Bessie & The Zinc Buckets will be tirning the Civic purple....local charity fund raisers the 'Purple Ladies' are putting on this event in aid of the Jay Lennon Fund working together to raise awareness of mental health.

Bringing rock-a-billy mayhem to the masses is the name of their game with a unique take on anything from 'Tainted Love' to 'Ace of Spades', a bit of punk, a bit of sleeze, some pop, some rock, but one thing is for sure, you will bop!

These guys really put on a show not to be missed and all for charity.

See Bessie Live
