A NIGHT of music and fancy dress takes place on Friday night to raise money for the Motor Nuerone Disease association.

Organised in association with ‘Penny Jar Promotions’ and held in Charlie’s Bar, Enniskillen, the night kicks off at 9pm and features two stages.

Musician Gareth Jones is involved in the organisation of the event. He lost his uncle, Paul O’Hara, to Motor Neurone’s Disease earlier this year.

“We’re organising a fundraiser to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease association due to losing a member of my family very recently. They were great with all the help and support they gave our family,” Gareth explained.

A large number of acts have been confirmed for the night, with both an electric and acoustic stage.

It’s also full fancy dress with prizes on the night.

Gareth explained: “We will be kicking off around 9pm just after the fire works. We have two stages with lots of talent from all over Northern Ireland the upstairs stage is an originals night with Subordinate, Midnight Transmission, Sense Deficiency, Cold Clean Dirt and Golden South.

“And downstairs we have a more chilled out scene on the acoustic stage with my band Captain Casey, Conor Phillips, Adam & Paddy, Hydrophonex and we start off with a traditional music set with the always amazing Uisce nua.”

Entry on the door is £5 with fundraising buckets available.
