This Friday, 17th February, sees a mega line-up of musicians and poets at the Star Inn in Broughton, which is a fundraiser for what is expected to be a huge protest in London on 4th March to save #OurNHS.

"The reason we're doing it is to try and get as many people as we can down to the national NHS demo" says Tom Long, who will also be performing his brand of lo-fi slowcore folk at the Star Inn event.

"We feel it's important to send a message loud and clear to the Government that the NHS is not for sale and that there's people willing to fight for it, especially when the uncertainty of Trump and Brexit looms large" he adds "We also feel that keeping the momentum of the anti Trump marches is important, and hopefully we can channel some of that energy into the issues that are effecting us directly in the UK."

Also appearing at the fundraiser are: Irma Vep - `a bluesman for this age of uncertainty'; poet John G Hall - `a colossal firebrand and Wythenshawe's one true beat'; Lucy and Virginia - `classic folksong craft with blissful harmonies'; Milton Pena - `former surgeon, author and NHS whistleblower'; Steph Pike - `tireless activist and political poet'; We Signal Fire - `huge melodies and mighty punk bombast' and DBH - `a master of instrumental song craft which finds the sweet spot between folk, blues and modern American primitive'...

Sounds like a top night with some energy, attitude and, most of all, a great mission to get as many people as possible sticking one on the Tory health cuts...

Meanwhile, as concrete boards are starting to be installed over exposed insulation on the blocks, Lead Member, Bill Hinds, said residents could start "voting with their feet" and leave their homes.
