|Don't Miss The Hootie|
45 bands will be playing loud and proud in W7
Hanwell will be rocking once again on Saturday (28th March) for the third ever 'Hootie'.
There will be
45 bands taking to 11 venues as well as a busking bus and fringe events.
Alice's Mum, Ros Hodgkiss said:
“We are very grateful to the Hanwell Hootie for their support this year. We have been astonished by the continuing support of the public for Alice's Youth Music Memorial Fund, which we hope will grow and provide a sustainable legacy of music-making for disadvantaged children. The fund has so far raised over £21,000 and we would like to thank all those who have donated or given up their time to organise collections or put on gigs in tribute to Alice's memory.”
Matt Griffiths, Executive Director, Youth Music said:
“The support for Alice’s Youth Music Memorial Fund has been terrific and the fund is continuing to help provide music-making opportunities for disadvantaged young people who would otherwise miss out. We remain grateful to the family for choosing Youth Music as the beneficiary of Alice’s memorial fund and to all those who continue to put on gigs in support of the Fund as part of our Give a Gig initiative or collect money to support our work.
W7 has been nicknamed the ‘Home of Loud’ because the iconic Marshall amp was created here after requests from local guitarists including Pete Townshend of The Who back in 1962.
In 2012 when Jim Marshall died, it was decided to hold a yearly music festival to continue his legacy in Ealing and his company, Marshall Amplification, is a key sponsor of the event.
