Win tickets to Skank Pool Ska Festival…

Take four friends with a common interest, give them a spark of an idea and watch them go!

That’s what has happened to Brian Reddington, Jon Bamborough, Ian Chadwick & Darren James. They talked about something that has never happened in Blackpool, a Ska Fest, and after asking people’s opinion on Facebook, decided to run with it. Now, several months down the line, it is all coming together. They have organised the biggest Ska event that the Fylde has ever seen. The Ska Fest will be held at Uncle Toms Cabin on the 17th March 2012 and will be headlined by Roddy Radiation (The Specials) and Rico Rodriguez (The Specials & Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra ), backing for these two legends will be provided by the amazing Ska Face.

The other nine bands (yes, nine) featured on the day will consist of the very best of Ska gathered from every corner of the country, including Stone Foundation who recently toured with The Specials.

Programmes will be sold on the day to raise money for Brian House, and an auction of donated items from the bands and clothing companies will take place for the same cause. Uncle Toms will also be arranging a bucket collection, so they hope to raise lots of money for Brian House too.

The festival will run Sat 17th March from 12 noon until 2am, so at £15 advance ticket & £20 on the door, its amazing value for money. If you miss this, you are missing something ‘Special’.

Tickets can be purchased directly from Uncle Toms Cabin, from the organisers or from the Skafest websiteHowever LTW is delighted to be able to offer a competition to win 2 VIP passes for Skafest”¦
