Tickets are now on sale for a special gig next month which will aid the Break children’s charity – and specifically the Rosedale children’s home in Lynn.

Headlining the show at Knights Hill Hotel will be Jessie’s Ghost, who will be be joined by local acts Sacred Nations, Phoebe and Jay, and Pirate Joe.

It takes place on Friday, May 13, with tickets priced at £10 in advance or £15 on the door, with all the proceeds going back to the charity.

Recently, three members of Jessie’s Ghost – Callum Waterfield, Simon Benefer and David Maddison – visited the home to meet some of the children helped by the charity and performed a few songs for them. They also took some time to teach the children a few chords on their guitars.

Jo Bensley, a support worker at the home, was excited to have the guys in and the children enjoyed it immensely, hanging on their every word.

Callum and Jo are engaged, and they are to be married later this year.

The charity is something that both he and the rest of the band believe in, and they are only too happy to lend their support.

As for the children, it was obvious how much they were enjoying themselves. It’s not every day a band comes and plays in your living room, so it was a memorable experience for them.

Jessie’s Ghost were hoping to put on a similar event last year, but due to scheduling it wasn’t possible, so they made sure that wouldn’t happen this year.

All of the acts on the bill are incredibly talented, so anyone going along on the night will be treated to some great music, and you can take that as a personal recommendation.

Good music for a very good cause, what other reason do you need?
