June 21st sees the tenth anniversary of the death of Chris Sievey/Frank Sidebottom.
11:37 Enterprises (ran by the Sievey family) planned to mark this significant milestone by organising a weekend event in Timperley but that obviously cannot happen due to C-19.
Reacting to this, 11:37 have partnered with THE OLD COURTS in Wigan who are kindly hosting an online celebration on Saturday 20th June from 7pm until 11:37pm.
The event is to be broadcast on both Facebook and The Old Courts Youtube channel.
Expect to see exclusive, unseen performance footage, deleted, raw documentary clips, fan compilations and long-lost excerpts from Frank/Chris’s extensive back catalogue.
Below is something you wrote at the time of Chris’s death. I honestly could not have said it better myself, so I didn’t and I published your thoughts in their entirety on my website.
