Deputy Mayor backs show raising cash for hospital

The Deputy Mayor of Dudley is backing a show being put on by local artists in the borough to raise cash for Russells Hall Hospital.

Councillor Hilary Bills met up with Billy Spakemon and Tom Stanton as they performed in the reception of the hospital for visitors this week.

The duo will be performing alongside a number of other local acts at Banger II, a live music show in association with Black Country Radio, at Brierley Hill Civic Hall on Friday 24th January.

All of the artists who are performing are waiving their fees, with the money instead going to the diabetes unit at the hospital. The Civic show has been organised by members of local band Rumour – Pete Brookes, Liz Nicholls and Rob Craner – who will also be performing on the night. Councillor Bills said:

"I was delighted to meet Billy and Tom – they organised a similar event last year which went down very well and I’m looking forward to seeing this one.

"It’s for an amazing cause and there are some really talented musicians on the bill, so I’d urge people to book tickets and get along to support them."

Tickets for the show cost £10 (in advance) or £12 on the door. For further information, or to book, head to to
